I went to the 3S Artspace Epic End of Summer Dance Party. I wanted to challenge myself to take a decent picture in the dark. I really admire night photography that captures mood — like this one. I wasn’t very successful but I did learn some things not to do for next time.
The event was very cool. I wished my sister was there so we could dance together. What 3S did was project the AHmazing film Girl Walk // All Day on a big blow-up screen in the alley. That film is incredible. I can’t believe I had never seen or heard of it before. My jaw was dropped for most of it. I want to investigate the possibility of showing it during the 4th Annual Women’s Clothing Swap next spring.
The projector was on top of a car. Gotta love that.
Here is a very short clip so you can get a sense of how cool this film is.
During the first screening people generally sat down and watched the film. After it ended they played it a second time but instead of playing the sound for the film a DJ played a new mix of dance music.
When I got home my husband looked at my photographs with me and gave me pointers for next time. I’d like to try to shoot the Portsmouth Halloween Parade next.
