Creative dance photoshoot

Inside the Musée des Augustins (Toulouse - France)

It has been a while since I've shared a bit of personal work! This photoshoot happened earlier this year, the photos were patiently waiting for me to be edited and shared. I learned so much during this session, tried a few things, explored that fabric thing I like a little more, and I have to admit, I am happy with the results.

I had a little team with me! Marion and Mélanie were kind enough to join me and give me a hand with the fabric. I've been to this fantastic museum before, but I wanted to create something specific in that room since my first shoot.

So what did I have in mind It is this picture?

Canon 5D marl III + 24 - 70mm f2.8L II 1/125s F4 ISO 1000 - 35mm

The idea was to blend and stitch together 3 stages of the falling fabric. I wasn't looking for a "perfect" symmetry, to make it more believable.

And this one ended up being a happy accident, with all the multiple attempts at getting the shot:

Canon 5D marl III + 24 - 70mm f2.8L II 1/125s F4 ISO 1000 - 35mm

The 2nd one I had in mind was this shot:

Canon 5D marl III + 24 - 70mm f2.8L II 1/400s ISO 1000 - 28mm

I wanted a sense of motion, I pictured her moving away from the columns and decided to add the fabric to make it more dynamic.

The other pictures were not planned, so I was happy to have enough time to make them too. Florencia Chinelatto is a fantastic dancer currently working at the Ballet du Capitole in Toulouse. I was fortunate enough to have her on this one, I really hope we will team up again on other future projects.
