Pixel Matrix, Ballroom and DanceSport
Over the past 10 years, we have had the opportunity to attend and work with many Ballroom DanceSport Events across Australia.
DanceSport is a combination of ballroom and latin stylings and has competitions across Australia and around the world. DanceSport encourages activity, making it a fast paced event. This sets a photographic challenge shooting moving subjects in various light conditions.
Photographing Ballroom, from a non-dancing background, proved a challenge. We have developed our own style capturing not only a pose but more of the “moment”. This is assisted through using a variety of different light sources to enhance the atmosphere in the frame.
Introduction of Video
More recently Pixel Matrix has had the opportunity to work with DanceSport Live filming some of these events. The video setup has been a trial and error process. We are continually refining our systems to best suit the industry. Like many other industries, documentation is an important tool. These tools like photography and video encourage people to try or recommend the sport. It is important we use these tools to help inspire a new generation of dancers.
Photography and video go further than offering documentation for couples and events. It allowers competition organizers and promoters to work closer with sponsorship groups. This allows photography and video to be sold as premium advertising products.
