Photo shoot with Ballet Dancers

•August 12, 2017 • Leave a Comment

Although not what I usually do with my camera, it’s been a great experience to do a nature-themed photo shoot with ballet dancers. I was lucky with the conditions; in a span of two hours we got a range of different types of natural light from harsh to diffused and then to overcast.

It was mere access to various old 35mm and medium format cameras that inspired this gallery. One cannot help but admire camera design from so many years ago, along with some long forgotten ways to building the tool that captures the image.

I’ve been interested in putting multipe photos in one frame for a while now, this presentation style adds new ways to enjoy and experience images. Whether it’s variations of the same theme or a more abstract approach to combine photos, it’s always interesting to see them as a single display.

I meant to write an end of the year summary blog post in December 2015 about a highly productive year behind me, but it turns out it was so productive that I couldn’t find any time to actually write about it.

I think one may have to be a psychopath to play Ecco the Dolphin through to its completion. As much as this may be an exaggeration, the level of difficulty of this Sega Mega Drive original nevertheless justifies it.
