Those photographs are taken by me during the Dance in Motion workshop and was selected by Ali Saadi for the exhibition.

Ali is a professional still photographer and cinematographer based in Amman , Jordan. Ali’s styles vary from Street Photography , Unconventional Wedding Photography, to Music and Dance Photography.

What I learned from Ali Saadi’s workshop:

1-You can choose your settings on TV when you are capturing motion photographs.

2- Shutter speed is our best friend when photographing movement.

3- Formula 1 would use 1/8000 or 1/4000 to capture a photograph of the car.

4- ISO = Sensitivity to light

5- The more you higher the ISO the more grain/noise you will get on your photograph.

6- If you are taking photographs in the dark, you will need to higher your ISO.

7- The higher the F stop the more light you get in, the lower the shutter speed, the more light you get in.

8- You can make a reflector at home by using tracing paper + cardboard.

9- Add back light to separate the body from the background.

** Please note that those notes are what I gathered during the workshop, some might be slightly mistaken or misunderstood, but more or less trying to use the advice above might result in better photography. 🙂 Enjoy

Here are more from what I captured during my workshop with Ali Saadi.
