UNTIL THE DAY I DIE, MY WORK AND MYSELF WILL ALWAYS BE A WORK IN PROGRESS. I invite you along this journey to see my progression as a photographer and as a human being.
Dance Study: Jane King
Dancer: Jane King Assisted By: Claire Guthrie
The awesome part about working with Jane is that her friend Claire (who just happens to be a dancer) comes along to make sure that Jane’s form and lines in dance moves and jumps are correct. I think that is pretty cool, because it allows me to worry only about the composition and timing. (Thank you Durell for that session we did, I think I’ve gotten better at timing now!). It was also pretty cool doing the session at Lincoln Center. I’ve seen other dance photogs use this as a backdrop, and now I got the chance to use it. 🙂
In this image offering, I captured Jane doing a jump by a nice water fountain. Now, little did I know that I would be doing multiple shots of this jump. But, we didn’t stop until we came away with this shot. Actually, we did a few more seeing if we could get something better…then nothing else came about and decided that this was the pick of the lot.
I love this black and white edit because it reminds me of a dance image that might have been captured in the mid-1900s (or a little bit later). This is definitely one of my favorite images of Jane thus far. And see Jane, the blue button up with the tutu did work out, :p. What say you viewer, successful image or unsuccessful image?
