City Dance Corps Xmas Party

December 5, 2008 - First Salsa Xmas party of my season and I was on my own time. No big equipment to lug around - just the little F30.

The party was the 6th Annual Holiday Party at No Regrets Lounge - near King West & Dufferin @ 42 Mowat Ave. I had never been to that area but it looks like it is going through a transformation from industrial use to residential use. Lots of new condos going up or being converted.

Sagittarius Salsa Party

Right after the Impulse show, it was off to the Sagittarius salsa party @ Dovercourt house.

DJ Geronimo in the house playing tunes.

I was too tired to stay long, so took off soon after the shows.

Impulse Dance Show - Part II

As I blogged about on Nov. 22, 2008 – I was fortunate enough to be part of the City Dance Corps production of Impulse @ the Betty Oliphant Theatre. Friday night was the dress / tech rehearsal for the show. I was there to pick out a vintage point to do my work and to see what equipment I needed.

The Sat. show was great entertainment and if you missed it, City Dance Corps has their next production in June 2009.

Below are some test shots from the rehearsal.

Cultural Explosion in the House

Juan Calderon brought his group from New Jersey to Toronto for the Impulse show in late November. After the tech rehearsal they managed to make it to Acrobat for a performance.

Nikon's new flagship model announced

Nikon's new studio camera with 24MP has been announced. Like the D2x before it, it took the sports model (D2h) and changed the sensor but kept the body.

Most people feel as Hitler feels in this clip:


Of course, do you really need 24MP?

Busy @ work

Sorry folks, I know there haven’t been any photos published publicly lately, but they should change next week. I have been busy at work processing the photos I took at City Dance Corps’ dance production called Impulse.

It was a one night affair featuring 2 acts with 20 different dance performances, played to a sold out house. I hope to be able to show you a small sample of the performances later this month. Below is a shot from rehearsal night.

In the meantime, I can now work on the backlog of the photos I have accumulated in the past two weeks.
