No Mean Feet

April 11, 2010

Another Tumblr rip off- same tumblr, so again I can’t credit the artist..

I love the movement in this shot, the repetition of all the dancer’s feet in the air at once – it captures the synchronicity of dance in a way that is difficult in a still shot.Obviously a fast shutter speed has been used to freeze the dancers without any movement blur.

The shot is obviously being lit by the window in the background which provides a very organic, earnest atmosphere – the floor appears nicely textured and gives the audience a sense of the countless hours of training that have been conducted here.

Dappled Light Portrait

April 11, 2010

I pilfered this image from Tumblr and the person hosting it hadn’t credited the photographer, so therefore I can’t….

It’s a beautiful portrait & I chose it because of the dappled light which I think adds a summery effect to the shot. Relatively shallow depth of field blurs the background, not so much that it is unrecognisable, but enough to make the model pop- the photographer has captured lovely catchlights in the models eyes- possibly through the use of a reflector as the sun seems to be on her back.
