Ok, so my daughter has her first dance recital coming up. My wife told me they were not allowing any videoing because they are doing professional video. So I was OK with this and paid the $25 for the video. Now I have equipment to take photos that are of "pro" status and I know how to use it. My wife told me today AFTER the dress rehearsal that I wasn't allowed to take photos either. I could understand this if they had a hired photographer also but they don't, just a video guy. I wasn't planning on using flash as I don't feel I need it. I think their statement should be "NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY".
I'm thinking of approaching the lady because I didn't get any photos tonight at the rehearsal due to my rushing over there after work and my original anticipation of taking photos during the recital.
EDIT: It was not a rehearsal, was just a 4 minute practice at the dance studio because they don't let the first year young ones on stage until the day of.
So should I take photos anyway or ask the lady for permission or what? I cannot believe I cannot take photos of her during the actual recital especially them not having a photographer.
Also what doesn't make sense is they hired a pro photographer for tonight's dress rehearsal to take photos, which I bought, but they said you are allowed to take photos then?... this is so damn backwards
Here is the disclaimer.
