So, let me preface this entire post with the fact that I'm not a dancer, but a dance admirer. I'm an avid SYTYCD watcher, I love everything about the way people move their bodies through dance, I love the elegance and the precision and the passion of it all. Besides some ballet classes before the age of ten, my dancing has been limited to bars, the privacy of my own home, and weddings :) When it comes to photography, the way a person carries themselves and the positioning of their body are what can take a picture from mediocre to amazing!
These two shoots were an opportunity to stretch myself as a photographer by working with two individuals who understand how to contort themselves into visually appealing shapes in two very disparate environments. Their flexibility and expressiveness allowed me to try out new techniques, new angles, and learn from them. Thank you to Jessie and Erin for their time and beautiful energy!
I am working towards an entire series dedicated to dance and motion. If you know of anyone who is a dancer who may be interested in participating, please have them contact me! Onwards and upwards!
