Ballet Magic

Magic of Ballet captured through the lens. I had the pleasure of shooting two beautiful ballerinas from Mexico they have been performing in Vancouver for about six months. I was able to have them do their magic in the studio last weekend and here are the amazing photos. .

For the techies the shots were made with a 6 foot impact umbrella and a 7 foot parabolic umbrella shooting with a d610 and d5100 using a 24-70 lens. For the flash I used an sb900 commander with sb700 and sb600 slaves. For the seven foot umbrella I used two flashes firing simultaneously into it to provide enough output.

Shooting through Glass – Vancouver Aquarium shots

This Saturday was a chance to do some non human photography while exploring the Vancouver aquarium. Most of the below shots I took while hand holding my DSLR and all manual everything (105 and 50 mm lenses) . Worked good for slow moving creatures such as star fish or jelly fish, but manual focus is truly a pain in the butt for birds (even if they are just being carried around by a human.)

Check out some pictures below, from the Vancouver Aquarium

Low Key – with Led Lighting

Last weekend I had a pleasure of working with the beautiful Ann Narky who stroke up some amazing poses and Konstantin who joined her in a few pictures for a couples’ sensual photography shot and then stayed for a couple of candid and head shots).

Their amazing couples shots will be published soon but now for the star of the shoot..Ann

Ann was the star of the shoot – with our goal really focusing on the body and shape and form – a couple of the pictures are attached here. Shooting in the studio was a bit chilly but the camera and the talented model kept going until we ended up with some fantastic pictures.

The setup was a softbox at -2 stops, iso 125, a fill umbrella and a use of my cell phone LED light to add touches of highlights to the body. All shots taken using the Nikon FX with a 24-70 setup.
