Electrotango lift and turn

Neither of these images are of a style I’d normally go for since they’re less likely to sell to magazines, but I was looking for very different effects when I took them. In the first I wanted to show the intimacy of an incomplete with one dancers’ face in as much light as possibly and the other in as much dark to contrast their roles. I wanted to emphasize the dancers’ spinning motion in the second and so kept the focus on the woman’s face.

Gaucho are obviously out to give their version of an authentic high-end Argentine dining experience. While it doesn’t quite jell with any of the things I discovered in Buenos Aires, the evening (and performance) was fun, the food was great and the wine to die for. I’ve been biased towards Argentine wines since learning about them while cycling the Rutas del Vino and Ruta 40 some years ago (I can’t speak for the cocktails from the Galante cocktail menu as I didn’t try any), and would recommend that you aim to finish your meal before the dancing begins. It would be sad not to give the food, drink and company the attention they deserve.

Both of these images were taken at the same time as the image in this post, at Gaucho Picadilly where we were invited to experience their new electrotango offering.
