[Pics] Flickr Spotlight #11 – Amazing Photos Of Dancers

From my experience as a photographer, dancers are the best models out there by far. I'll always prefer shooting a dancer with no modeling experience, than someone who cant dance and have some experience. They Know how to move, how to control their body and positions. They have grace, and usually with them I get the best results. So to prove my point, this week I'm bringing you some of the best dancing photos found on Flickr - Check them out and tell us which are your favorites!

If this set inspires you - take a friend who can dance and make her/him your model for a day and share your results on our Facebook Group for all of us to see.

Gorgeous shots - I shoot a lot in the bellydance community around here - same reason - so much grace and poise!

Christopher Peddecord's entire stream could be posted here. I'm pretty sure he's a dancer himself, but he has some truly great work. This is one I always show others, it's incredible!

Working with contemporary dancers was amazing. They are talented, generous of their time and beautiful to see perform. http://valeriemercier.tumblr.com/ http://valeriemercier.tumblr.com/post/20934295576/a-huge-thanks-to-the-i... 

Really like the dynamics in some of these images. Also the compositions and locations. Great work!
