A flamenco dancer whirls mid-performance.

Dave adds:

“We were lucky enough to visit the Pavilions private pool villa hotel in Phuket last autumn for the launch of their Passions programme. One of the Passions they showcased for us was dance, and they’d flown in a very talented set of performers to demonstrate flamenco – two Argentinian dancers and a Spanish guitarist.

“I wanted to capture the sense of movement, so I turned off the flash, slowed the exposure down to 1/30th of a second and upped the ISO setting to 1000. The darkened room and spotlights helped, of course.”

About Dave

Dave was bitten by the expat bug at the age of 13 when he went to live in Germany. Since leaving school at the age of 30 (with a doctorate in something so obscure even he can't remember what it's about) he's also lived in Bangladesh, India and Thailand, and travelled to most European countries (including several that don't exist any more, though he denies responsibility), as well as Barbados, South Korea, St Vincent, UAE, Laos, and many more.
