There is a photo that hopefully was taken of us at the last competition, but we haven't seen the prints yet. DP contrachecked me right in front of the camera. So want to see it.

I'll be taking LOTS of photos of you when you come to Crown in April!  Wink

That is a very difficult move to make look good - simply because there are so many examples of the pro's doing it (near) perfectly to compare with

Okay. So this thread actually explores two concepts -- picture lines and dance photography.

I'm going to go with the first. Picture lines are an awesome way to help a dancer (I'm thinking ladies in smooth especially) feel the beauty of the dance. I don't compete so I have no idea what is or isn't allowed at which levels, but I can't' imagine smooth restricting picture lines as much as would standard,for example.

As far as the dance photography discussion that followed (which I think probably belongs in a separate thread.) if you've ever had a real professional photo shoot, you will know that the vast majority of the shots are imperfect if not downright bad.  That's why professional photographers use up rolls and rolls of film (Yes.  There are people who still use real film) looking for a perfect shot. There are going to be shots where your nose is too big or where you blinked. There will also be shots where you look ravishing. That's the nature of the best.  Photographers are trying to capture perfection in a fraction of a instant. It doesn't always work out perfectly.  *shrug*

I guess one could read the title less generously - people who stop to primp and show off rather than doing a picture-line figure.  it may be a cultural issue but 'posing' in one language is a positive 'proud of yourself' but in another is a 'showing off pretentiously'

I suppose either works topic-wise

Good point. Hmm. Of course,primping and picture lines are related.  I would say it's a matter of degree.
