This is a beautiful example of the ‘classic’ tango photo, shot in the late afternoon light at the Mimos y Tango Encuentro Milonguero in Riva Del Garda, Italy. Dele has captured the dancers, pin sharp in the foreground, as they pause in a moment of intimacy, waiting for the music to move them onwards through the dance. It is our pleasure to feature Dele’s photo on Tangofolly!
We caught up with Dele to hear more:
I took the photo on Sunday, the last day of the weekend, late afternoon and the dancefloor was crowded. I suppose everyone, especially those who are ready to travel back home, were making the most of what was left of the weekend – lots of dancing, long tango goodbye kisses and embraces in between the dancing.
Nikon D750 with 55-200mm lens for late afternoon outdoor lighting conditions, and artificial low light indoors with warm colour tone (yellow).
