Charity Dance Photography 1st July 2014

1st July is a public holiday in Hong Kong and we have a charity dance coming up. They're dancing for charity and the donations will go to the Changing Young Lives Foundation.

CYLF

One of our members, Stella Chan, is a dance instructor. She donates her own time and money to teach dance to these children. Teaching children how to dance could be better explained here in this short movie clip.

Our job as photographers are to shoot many good photos and send them all to the organization. JPG Meetup Group has done this before in donating our time, and sometimes, money to help people who are less fortunate. Here's a video of 12 of us helping shoot and print passport photos for poor school children. Their families can't afford the HK$60 to get them shot and printed. So we stepped up, thanks to Jenny who told us about it and to Wing Liu, who brought his photo printer along.  Thanks to all the photographers who showed up and donated cash to buy the printing paper and ink. It was a very good day for us all!

There's only room for 10 photographers. Shooting time is 2pm to 9pm. It's a 7 hour shoot and I propose splitting up the photographers into 2 groups.

1st Group will shoot from 2pm until 6pm.

2nd Group will shoot from 6pm until 9pm.

Schedule of dances:

2pm Zumba (Tommy Tse)
3pm African (Bibi Cisse)
4pm Belly Dance (Mey Jen Tillyer)
5pm Sexy Heels (Stella Chan)
6pm Zouk (Kelson Costa & Giovanna Leoni)
7pm Bachata (Franky & Chris, Ricci & Doris)
8pm Salsa (Franky & Chris, Ricci & Doris)

As usual, I will be there for the whole duration. There's food and restaurants everywhere as it's in Causeway Bay next to Sogo. Transportation is, as usual, beyond excellence in this part of the city

What to bring:

1. Camera.

2. Wide zoom lens.

3. Flash

No tripods as dancers will trip over them. 

Every photographer can shoot at the same time. We'll brief you when you get there. 

Some photos from the previous Shoot the Crazy Runway.

    I don't have a flash :(

      You normally won't need a flash. The last time we shot was without one. Just shoot at high ISO. Look at the pictures I posted here. None were shot with flash except for the big group photo, which had LED lights on them.
