Art
(1st try)

Art
(2nd try)

But alas, all good things must come to an end. It's time to go home.

As I was leaving, I saw a group of people forming up to start contra dancing again. Sensing a potential picture, I crawled in between the lines of people (before they started dancing), snapped the picture, and crawled out.

And that folks, was the last picture I took at the wedding.

That second Art picture is so funny! I don't know how you think of these things...

I'm glad you liked it, Kristen.

I probably shouldn't give away my secrets (yeah right, what secrets??), but one way to get pictures like this is to keep your eyes open for scenes that have potential, and then just shoot picture after picture of it, from many different angles and compositions, until you finally get something that works.

For example, with Art 1 & 2, I thought the lighting of the scene was cool so I just started shooting. What you don't know is I deleted 75% of the pictures I took of that scene. ;-) Which leads me to Tip #2:

The DELETE key is your friend. Use it often.
