Burmese dancer

We had a holiday in Burma in April, it included two weeks on a boat on the Irrawaddy. One night we had a troupe of traditional Burmese dancers on board. I wanted some shots, but knew I would need flash. I didn’t want the usual ‘frozen’ flash pictures, I wanted some movement. I am a bit of a novice with flash – sad to say after using cameras for 55 years. I was using my Fuji X20 and tried ‘slow-synchro flash’ with the camera set to 1/8th second and f5.6. The blue blur is a twirling umbrella. The shot below was 1/8th at f9.0
