Dancer Portrait

July 13 2014

Untitled photo

I shot two groups of dancers of Scarborough Youth Presenting Art Festival yesterday. The above picture is one of the many shots I took. It's been a while since last time I did something edgy, since my personal work is getting more and more romantic and painterly these days. However, this type modern urban dancing style needs that edgier approach when being photographed. It just wouldn't make sense if it's all soft, dreamy and romantic.

Dancer group: Laurier Supreme Kru. I met them three years ago at the Scarborough Youth Presenting Art Festival.

Lighting (for those of you who might want to know): main light is a seven footer parabolic umbrella with diffusion panel. Kickers are 7 inch bare reflector.
