This image was taken indoors without flash with only partial natural lighting entering the Longhouse. I used 200 ASA film and set the meter at 160 that would saturate the color. I then used a slower shutter speed to slow the movement of the dancer to imitate the story that she portrays in her rendition of the story her dance shares. A very colorful and enjoyable experience.
I hope you all like the image...
