Ballet

For the longest time I have wanted to do a Ballet shoot, shooting dancers has always been a passion of mine and there is a certain extra grace to a ballet dancer. Especially one that can get on pointe without it looking false. Adian is a trained ballet dancer taking weekly lessons in the perfect point… which is a good thing as it would be easy to go over and break an ankle!

 


 

How about Ballet from the 1920’s?


 


Love the grace and style of the above image, totally self posed by the model but it clearly demonstrates the grace of pointe as well as the strength required to perform this move,

These ballet images were taken at a photography day in Peterborough in June 2018.

Did you make it to the end and what I think is perhaps the best image from the day? Do you agree?
