Russian Splits

A studio shot of some friends who happen to be awesome gymnasts. They'd never done any partner work before the shoot so I spent a little while teaching them some acrobalance before getting busy with the lights and camera.

Their supreme fitness and bodily awareness made learning new skills fairly easy. This counterbalance is relatively straightforward if you have the strength and flexibility but is still somewhat dangerous.

The lighting was a single strobe fitted with a gridded standard dish reflector, flagged with 2 black v flats.
