The Varsity Blues Dance Team keeps spectators entertained at half-time. Photo by Louis Tam.
The Varsity Blues dance team performs during the half-time break at a basketball game between the Blues and the Ryerson Rams. Photographer Louis Tam (BA 2009 UTSC) took the shot at the Athletic Centre in February 2009 while working for the Varsity Blues.
Tam, who studied journalism and history at U of T in a joint program with Centennial College, says he aims to tell stories with his pictures. “I like this photo because it was a hard shot to grab,” he says. “At the time, I was shooting with a low-end camera in bad lighting. I didn’t have the speed of the pros with more expensive gear, and it definitely took several tries and a bit of determination to get it right.”
