Are movement and stillness mutually exclusive, or are they compatible with one another?
We will try to answer this question using the language of photography.
Dance photography isn’t only about the the split second of the movement frozen for eternity. It is a photographer’s ability to see beyond what a human eye can see. Long exposures and creative use of the lights will enable new ways of capturing the elusive magic of the dance.
For this experimental shoot we’re bringing you once again the gorgeous Emily Suzuki, a professional award winning Japanese ballerina.
This will be a small group shoot, with photographers taking turns in directing the model. The theme will be “Long Dance Exposures” using a variety of techniques and professional lights (both continuous and flashes).
Check your calendars and sign up soon!
No experience of the particular theme is required and we can accommodate all levels of ability. As usual, we will take care of everything and all you need is your camera (with a standard hot-shoe to accommodate the provided radio trigger for the lights).
You can check Emily’s portfolio in the gallery attached.
• What to bring
No experience of the particular theme is required and we can accommodate all levels of ability.
Please make sure that your camera has a standard hot-shoe, to accommodate the provided radio trigger for the lights (Godox system).
If possible, please bring your own tripod for this shoot. We will have 2 professional tripods in the studio, but it might be faster to use your own, to minimise set-up times.
