Taking photos, admittedly, has not been a strong suit for me in the past, but working at NOLA.com in Baton Rouge has given me many opportunities to take my own photos. (We don’t have a photog on staff, though we do have access to freelancers when the occasions arise.)
Last night, I took photos of the Baton Rouge Ballet Theatre’s final dress rehearsal of the annual spring concert. The concert includes Act III of “Sleeping Beauty” plus some contemporary pieces. Having the freedom to walk around a little and not worry about standing in front of someone gave me more confidence in taking these, which I think helped them come out nicely.
