Yesterday I attended a pointe class at ‘The Studio, A Dance Center for Adults’ in Brookline, MA. A friend of mine takes classes there, and she was able to arrange for me to come into a class with my camera to get some reference for a possible future body of work.
I did my best to stay out of the dancers’ way, and as a result I spend a lot of time crawling around on the floor or in a doorway. But I was never kicked, so I guess I succeeded.
With the help of rapid burst, I took just under 1000 pictures of yesterday’s dancers. I don’t know exactly what I am going to do with them just yet, but when I figure it out I will be sure to let you know!
Here are some stand-out shots from the session. Now, what makes a good photograph is not necessarily what makes good photo reference for a painting. So you can expect to see totally different images in whatever I make from these.
