For this week’s Shireen’s Favorite Things blog shoot, Shireen Sandoval, myself and the SFT team headed to Barre Motion, located on 1560 LENOX AVE SUITE 103A, Miami Beach FL.
Barre’s head instructor (Julie Jacko) along with fellow instructor (Kareen Camargo) proceeded to stretch and strain Shireen into various ballerina’esqe poses to demonstrate their intense workout routines. All of this as I happily snapped away. 🙂
“My first ballet recital was nothing short of a disaster; but at the same time, it was a small miracle of sorts. The disaster: when the curtain went up at the start of the show, I froze in first position. I was a total deer in the headlights as my fellow dancers (in pretty pink tutus and tight hair buns) pirouetted and plié’d around me.”
For this shoot I used the Profoto B1, with a 60″ soft silver umbrella. The challenge was (again) the mirrors in the dance studio. They allowed me to shoot only a very small number of angles on the models/dancers and restricted my placement of the light a great deal.
I think things worked out ok though 😉
