Dance Past and Present

I have started capturing images for the upcoming dance year but it seems a bit odd for I am just finishing up the last years worth of images to include in a book. Things really do not get too busy till December as the season is only one month old so for now I am getting some of the dancers into the studio for some custom images. Thus Dance Past and Present. Aside from my daughter I have a couple of dancers who regularly come in and help me out with my projects during their inception.

The concentration for the next couple of months will be capturing the attitude in the more edgy styles of dance performed at the studio and to see what kind of “action” shots I can set up. For the first session a dancer who has seen my lens up close many a time agreed to pose for me.

And concluding with a lot of flare!


I am very confident when capturing the live performances of the team, other than positioning myself due to the heads getting in the way I have no issues. Getting them in the studio with some kind of creative light going is still very much trial and error for me. I am very thankful for my first subject for it is because of her I am able to improve and try new and different ways of doing things

I could not resist sticking a softbox in front of her before we ended.


Thanks for stopping by! Till next time…
