Rakkasah West Dress Rehersal at Menara

Rakkasah West is coming up in another week.

Menara Moroccan Restaurant was a wonderful host, as always. I decided to try some work with a flash. I don’t actually own a flash, so using one is always a bit of a learning experience. I think the flash helped, although as most know, moving it off camera to a different location in the room would’ve provided better illumination and of course, more interesting light. I would’ve been better off with 70-85mm instead of 50, but work with what you’ve got. This dancer was performing a veil dance. Timing is critical, the veil is very fluttery, and some of the time they turn out the way you hope.
