Waltham, MA 063012 Close to 300 young women attended tryouts in order to become official Celtic Dancers on June 30, 2012. (Essdras M Suarez/ Globe staff)/ MET
BEHIND THE SCENES: When it comes to newspaper assignments you truly never now what you are going to get. After having had to photograph male exotic dancers on Thursday, today I got to photograph young women trying out to become dancers/ cheerleaders for the Boston Celtics... there is after all a balance to the intricate design of life after all (:-) It is by no means a hard thing to photograph. There were photos everywhere. If anything you have to curtail your shooting as to not overshoot the assignment. I've done this a couple of times in the past and whenever galleries like these get posted on the Boston Globe's site the hits reach the six digits pretty fast. I expect this time to be the same.
TECH STUFF: Two cameras: D3 and D3s, Two lenses: 24-70mm 2.8 and 70-200mm 2.8. ISO 2,000, WB: auto, Mode: Manual.
