I took this shot after her performance. 22" BD w/40* grid, powered by 1x 580EX II. She didn't give me much since there was about 50 people watching me take this picture and waiting to speak to her.

Stunning shot! Fantastic light - was there a flash?

Ah piano recital days - 15 years of them + state competitions. I bet you were proud :)

Thank you sir! I had a grid'd BD camera left about 3ft from subject. The room was fully lit.

I remember my piano recital days, and I don't recall anyone ever getting a bouquet of flowers, or having people stop to talk/congratulate the performer immediately after said performance :) Was this some major junior event?

I know from my own experience that it's not that easy taking photos right after a piano recital with people waiting all around you. There's that "I have to take this quickly and correctly" pressure. You did very well here.

I saw that happen a lot at my recitals - I studied with a very serious and well respected teacher. My gift however, was a cup of coffee and the thought that I was going to sleep that night....finally. :lol:

During my piano days, my recitals were with 15-20 kids and 1 featured pianist. So for her to have her own SOLO recital was a big deal. I guess she just completed some required (Baroque & Sonatina) classical period. I think she performed like 15 songs total. I believe she will go a long way with her talent and she is only 11. The girl practices like 3-4 hours a day, sometimes longer according to her mum.

Thank you... I had an ideal of what I wanted to shoot, got my shoots and then I was out of there. We are doing formals at the studio later this week.

I do quite a bit of violin and piano recitals, and I always prepare in advance by playing around with some ideas. Hope you have more from such events to share here.
