I was outside my comfort zone — in a dark arena with a lit stage, surrounded by screaming fans and ear-splitting “music”. On stage were energetic, athletic and fresh-faced middle-school girls looking possessed by the noise.
My granddaughter’s cheer team was competing in the USA cheer finals. Many hours of practice go into their dance, tumbling and pyramid building routine … set to “music”.
The lighting is poor, the action is frenetic, and the routine (thankfully) lasts less than 3 minutes. No time to experiment with camera adjustments. It was a thrill watching her perform, and it took every ounce of willpower to keep shooting instead of gawking.
Wow! What those girls can do!
