UBC Ballet Club – Dance Calendar

These photos are one of the first times I’ve done dance photography as an organized shoot rather than as event photography.  The shots were done for a calendar for UBC Ballet Club.  They will use three of my poses.

I see lots of flaws in these shots (and I’m only publishing the best ones), but the Ballet Club seemed happy:

WOW! These are probably the most captivating dance photos I have seen from the shoot. I love the lighting and how it highlights the lines of the dancers. Both yourself and Martin are absolute superstars. You really made us look amazing in these photos. I love them so much!

  1. I would add a second light source, especially on the stair photographs. With a second light (such as a softbox) you could illuminate the dancer while maintaining the halo/backlit effect. These are a good starting point, but to improve in the future more/different light is needed. I would encourage you to check out lighting technique and maybe even take some courses in it (theres some in Video).
