I love working with dancers and playing with fabrics and movement. My work is inspired by Renaissance old master paintings so my soft lighting will reflect that look. Montana is a professional ballerina and aerialist. Camera: Nikon D750, 50mm lens @ f/2.8, 1/200 ISO 100. Backdrop is gray seamless paper. Post processing using ACR and Photoshop.

Squint your eyes and look at this... the shape created by the movement of the fabric is captured as something beautifully fluid. Like ink-drops in water.

Absolutely enjoyed the fluid in mid-tones. PP choice of skin tone highlights still manages to hold attention at face. Thanks.
