MANHATTAN DANCESPORT CHAMPIONSHIPS: A COUPLE OF WINNER PHOTOS, IN SEPIA

I’ve gotten no sleep for about the past 72 hours and have a big day ahead, so I’ll definitely write more about this weekend’s ballroom competition soon. But for now, here are a couple of photos I took and tried to doctor today. The ballroom’s ceiling lights are always turned down so low and the floorlights were mainly red, so everyone looks like they’ve got orange-peel-colored skin, when I can lighten the pics well enough that skin tone can even be seen. Someday, I’ll get a professional camera… Here are Riccardo Cocchi and Yulia Zagoruychenko (Latin winners), and Arunas Bizokas and Katusha Demidova (Standard champs).

What do you think of the sepia anyway? Does it work? It kinds of makes them look historical, or timeless, no?

  1. I like the sepia effect. I like the pictures, too!

  2. Wow! I don't think I've ever seen a close up picture of Riccardo. He's quite handsome!
    The sepia tone is lovely but I gotta see the costumes in color. Thanks for posting these pictures and look forward to reading your post soon!

  4. I like your pictures a lot! They have feeling… I think pictures of ballroom dancers can be harsh sometimes, yours have a refreshing softness that I love :)
