You know how some moments just speak to you, staying on your mind well after the day? Well…that’s how I felt about shooting the dancers at Serenbe. (If you didn’t get a chance to read the last blog post, check it out here.) Truth be told, that’s how I feel about all of my sessions. I love feeling a certain “sense” about people, such as Emily. Something about her eyes and gaze draw you right in; they are so soulful.
Of course, no shoot with dancers is complete without capturing the dancer’s stance, as I like to call it, and the effortless grace of the way they carry themselves and flow into a pose.Below are two of my favorite images from the shoot. I’m a sucker for moody images. In fact, it took evertyhing in my power not to post the same photo in black and white AND color. (Perhaps I will share the black and white version, too, in a later post.) One of the great things about Emily was her ability to center herself and project a quiet presence naturally. I love when there is an opportunity to incorporate props in a shoot. During the shoot and while editing, all I could think to myself was, “Quoth the raven, ‘Nevermore.’” You gotta love a little Edgar Allen Poe. I guess I will end here with the same soulful gaze that started the post but in a different setting. Thanks, Emily, for being such a great model!
