Yesterday we attended Viva Brazil, a festival in Federation Square. There was Brazilian food, Brazilian music and Brazilian dancers. Quite a pleasant way to spend an afternoon.
Not often I get free license to watch semi-clad women dance. And the dance was all shake and wobble. The women were all well built and obviously having fun. No anorexics in this chorus line.
One of my gripes with cameras and photography is that the eye and brain conspire to make you unhappy with the photos you take. The photo below is of a group of dancers. In real life it was bright, energetic, noisy; lots of wobble, smiles and fun.
The eye focuses on the bits of interest to the exclusion of all else.
The camera's rendition is just a little sad. Oddly, because it includes everything, it is empty and sparse.
Close cropping and Photoshop helps put a bit of life back into it.
Viva Brazil! Viva Photoshop!
