Liquid Color on Feet

Zaria Dancers

05-MAY-2012

Zaria Dancers performed at the 2012 Spring Escondido Renaissance Faire. Zaria is a dance trio that I had not seen before. Their movements were smooth and fluid, and they generally kept good eye contact with the audience. The sound system was not up to its task, however, and was rather harsh on the ears. Nevertheless, I expect that they will become better known on the faire circuit, since they delivered a quality performance.

These photographs benefit from the soft light of a covered stage, yielding good color saturation and smooth skin tones. No hot spots, no deep shadows - a plain backdrop would have been nice for the photographs, but the dancers dominate the images regardless. And the gold really pops!
