A Conversation at the Barre

Quite often when I’m shooting one thing I’m on the lookout for anything else that might make a nice photo even it’s not really what I’m supposed to be shooting. I was working on a project with some dancers and I had this corner setup with a nice dramatic lighting arrangement. These dancers were ready to pose for me but I noticed that when they walked up together they fell into a conversation and I liked their relaxed look a lot. I realized right away that I wanted to catch a genuine candid moment in this light just as much as I wanted some nice poses. As I picked up my camera they immediately started to hit a real pose but since I really wanted to get a candid first I told them a little white lie and said I needed to take a couple of test shots to check the lighting. They immediately fell back into their conversation and totally ignored me as I photographed them. I got exactly what I wanted.

Another Wedding

I photographed another wedding on Friday so I decided to post a set of images from the event here today.


I caught this roller-blade skater moving to the beat as he zipped by me on 7th Avenue the other day.
