A favorite shot from my recent shoot with the lovely and super talented Delaine Kylynn Dobbs. I’m calling this one “Lighter than Air” as she appears to be floating just off the floor. Her right foot is not quite touching and you can barely see her left heel is off the ground too. I assume she’s on her left toe (hidden behind the dress) but who knows.. she could very well be floating. There are more to come from this shoot and I think we’ll be working together soon on some more images. Thank you Delaine for gracing the space in front of my camera!
I also want to give a shout out to Martin O’Connor Photography for his dance photography workshop I attended a couple of years ago. It really helped me to understand how to work with dancers and understand their needs and what they want to see in their images.
