Ballet Themed Shoot

I am without doubt the most reluctant dancer on this planet, however, I do seem to have a liking for photographing dance and have done for a while now. Having attended a dance photography workshop with Nicola Selby several years ago to learn the technicalities of capturing this genre of images, it dawned on me that a critical eye for detail is necessary to capture ‘the moment’ when the dance manoeuvre is at its peak. I do not pretend to have got the eye for this yet but I am improving I believe.
These images are from a fantastic shoot with Maria Jazmin, photographed at Hallam Mill in Stockport. We worked through an array of styles and themes but the first ones that I have processed were an artistic play on some ballet moves and poses. I have deliberately added textures to these images some give them a slightly different feel as is now becoming more of my style. More images can be seen here

  1. These are great and the textures add that something special, not sure about the second image, where she is sitting, all the rest are in motion so to speak, composition, spot on, colour palette very pleasing and easy on the eye. all together a great set. Well done you!!

  2. Thanks Willie for taking to call in and Leave some feedback it’s much appreciated. There are more images to come with a different look and feel to them.
