This is a dancer from Beat the Streets after his performance at Auckland International Festival.

I approached the group after their amazing show and asked permission to take their photos.  I then used an open aperture f2.8 in order to blur the background so it is less distracting.  I have used a filter to enhance the beautiful tattoo on his chest when converting the image into monochrome.
