XVIII・VII・MMXVIThe Ballerina

balleticon2

This shoot was done in collaboration with a ballerina of the English National Ballet in a small Dojo Studio in North London. We went for a very natural look that focused on the dancer displaying a small portion of her talent. These were taken with the Contax 645 and Canon EOS3 with the films Fuji 400H and 160NS. This was also my first and a positive experience with Carmencita Film Lab, as UK Film lab had moved to Canada. I look forward to creating more unique film photography experiences such as this one.

    Very nice tones and captures of movement. It must be hard to capture dancing in film. It's so nice to see a ballerina in your fine art portfolio
