What makes for a GREAT dancing shot?
When its a photo of a mom of 5 kids who is rather reserved (I did family portraits for her 2 years prior to this photo) who then lets loose on the dance floor
When meaningful stuff happens around the dancefloor:
When you capture intimate moments like JClay pointed out above:
Not the bride and groom...
And when the photo just elicits a laugh for the people involved. I took this one in 2009, but the bride posts it for fathers' day every year on FB. That MC/singer in the background was a hoot, he made the reception memorable. This photo just captures that perfectly for myself and the client.
So, ultimately, I think my answer is photos with private meaning for the people involved are what make dancing shots great, even if others outside that intimate zone may not get the context.
