A special dance photoshoot
Behind the scenes video Feat. Louise Djabri & Julie Charlet
It took me a long time to share these pictures! Of course, you all know that the videos on my YouTube channel are not posted in chronological order. So, this session happened in Toulouse a few months back during the days when I had the Canon EOS R5 in my hands with the RF 50mm and RF 85mm lens. I also had the EF to RF adapter for my EF lenses (that I no longer have). This session was special, not because I had 2 wonderful dancers but because one of the 2 was pregnant!

A quick look at my Instagram or my website, and you will obviously realize I am not a maternity photographer. Julie and I had a lot of difficulties meeting again and when we finally had the opportunity… she was 8 months pregnant. Since this session happened a few months back, you guessed it, she had her baby by now. She actually gave birth to her son a week after this photoshoot! Congrats to the new parents.
So back to this session, a pregnant woman couldn't stop me, I just thought that this would be the opportunity to learn a thing or two... For this one, we were lucky enough to work inside la Cour des consuls, a magnificent hôtel in Toulouse. We had a small window to work with, so we had to work fast, which means that I will end up not doing half of the things I planned. I had my talented assistant Marlène with me again who has become a flying fabric expert over time.

All the images in this video were shot with my Broncolor Siros L 800ws used as my main light source. It was during this session that I knew that the Canon R5 was a great camera. I only had the camera in my hands a couple of hours before the session, but I felt comfortable with it right away, and I am pleased with the results we got. If you haven’t seen my review on the camera, be sure to check it out.

Before you leave 2 things:
Some of you apparently didn’t get the memo. I have a 2nd YouTube channel, with some of my video work.
And the following announcement will be in French:

For all of you who don’t understand french, you can still stop by and say “Hi”, you still might learn a thing or two. Let's hope that maybe we’ll have another opportunity for a Webinar but this time in English. Until next time please take care and have a good one!
