    Nutcracker on Ice

    I had the privilege of shooting the Nutcracker on Ice at the Ice Chalet here in Knoxville on December 4. I got the opportunity from Tom Geisler, one of the teachers at the University of Tennessee Photography Certificate program.

    It was a very challenging environment, but I had lots of fun doing it.

    Here is a link to a post on my blog about the experience.

    There are a couple of shots below. My goals were:
    (1) Good exposure
    (2) Sharp
    (3) No body parts cut off
    (4) Good composition

    I'd appreciate any C&C.

    Good stuff

    I'd like a slight rotation on some of them (#4), and perhaps a touch more space in front of the skaters, but that's just nit picking.

    Cliff - Excellent opportunity to try shooting the sort of thing that doesn't come along every day (well, not here it doesn't anyway). Pretty good job done in terms of your goals. I think in terms of objectives 1) and 2), the first two maybe a bit soft (although you have posted them up here at quite small sizes so we're not seeing them at their best). But you've certainly got the last two.
