I headed out to see some more of the city today. It turns out there was a 'Lilac festival' in full swing in progress on 4th street. I milled about will the crowd for a while until I came across some dancers setting up for a demonstration of some classes they'd taken in the city. I set my camera on a long exposure (1/15th and 1/8th of a second), the aperture down at 1/22, and dropped the exposure two notches (not sure if that helps with the exposure and aparture already set, but I assume it does because there's a film speed setting on the camera that essentially does the same thing), and took a few snaps to try to capture the motion of the dancers. It worked! Now if only I had my film scanner, I could show you.
