Stage Photography is a little tricky.
I am lucky enough to have three children who are drawn to the spotlight.
We are doubly lucky that their high school has been acknowledged as a
Specialist School of the Arts...I don't think another country school has been awarded this Title.
We are blessed to have some awesome Specialist Arts teachers.
My kids aren't shy to get up there and give it a go.
The He-Devil AKA Josh is an all rounder, he dances, sings, plays musical instruments and enjoys acting ...but not as much as the singing and dancing!
The Senior She-Devil AKA Jordy has discovered a love of dance, her brother's inclusion in the winning 2008 Rock Eisteddfod crew, encouraged Jordy to get involved in 2009. She loved it!
This Year the Youngest She-Devil AKA Tess was accepted into the newly introduced Specialist Art Program at Hedland Senior High.
Tess loves singing and is now developing a love of dance.
Thursday was the first Arts Showcase for 2010.
The school puts on a show, and invites the parent/family/caregivers and community members, to let us see first hand what our kids have been working on in the first five weeks of the school year.
I am lucky that I am a parent AND a teacher it gives me connections that allow me to play with my camera, trying to come to terms with shooting stage shots MINUS flash, so you do not distract the performers!
Yes you have to pump up your ISO...so sometimes the shots have a lot of 'noise' visible BUT I love that I get to come in during dress rehearsals to click a way. I love that I get to see how my brood is progressing.
I am so very proud of each of them.
This week past I was particularly proud of the He-Devil.
He had an accident Saturday just gone and has broken some bones in his hand.
No cast, because they are chipped bones in his carples, but some pretty serious strapping.
He ditched the strapping, adapted his moves so he did not have to use his right hand very much for his performances and the 'show did go on' :0)
So today on SOOC Saturday I am sharing a few pics from the Showcase.
Yes Yes Yes, I am a proud Mamma :0)
Now pop over to Melody's @ Slurping Life and join in.
