Stay out of the way of the dancers. More than once, while concentrating too intently on the viewfinder, I've nearly been stampeded by a flock of fairies.
Neil, what great advice! You crack me up totally with the fairies story. I can just imagine, and sympathise.
I have 400 film for the dressing rooms and 800 film for the stage. I'm hoping to get away without pushing as much as I can.
