Having properly shot my first burlesque show last year, I broadened that by shooting the Folly Mixtures for the first time. The combination of low (often pink) light and rapid movement is still extremely difficult and I have a lot of respect for many of the photographers whom I’ve met at shows and whose work I have been following with a more knowledgeable eye. As for the Follies, their American-themed extravaganza throws a dozen dancers onstage at once in the incredible opening and closing numbers.
