As the hula show progressed, the front cleared out, allowing me to move up. I optimally positioned myself for an unobstructed view of the performance. This also enabled me to change my aperture setting.
Yesterday, I wanted to have the foreground audience somewhat in focus. That necessitated a smaller aperture. Today, I shot wide open at f2. This had the effect of creating a shallower depth of field. I focused on the center performer.
Female dancers come to mind for hula, reinforced by popular culture. However, there are male dancers too. These performances often inject Hawaiian culture and history into the program. You get to experience more than your stereotypical show.
