Dance Theatre South recital at the Carolina Theater

The recital was really good. It was very well organized, very appropriate, and fun to watch.

I had taken my camera,  my long lense 70/200 1:2.8 and 4 CF cards of  32 GB in case I was really inspire to shoot there.

Well I was inspired, I actually filled almost all of them!

I had a blast taking so many photos, the colors of the background were amazing, and the dancers were really good!
