One of my birthday presents was a dance photography masterclass, hosted at the Victoria and Albert museum and led by renowned dance photographer Chris Nash. This was a bit of a departure for my photography, although followers of my blog may remember I captured a couple of satisfactory shots from late night entertainment on my Cuba trip.
The above is a montage of three shots taken trying to capture Soledad doing an impressive flying leap. It’s my homage to the work of Eadweard Muybridge. I think it works, although it has reminded me why I try and develop my images directly in the RAW processor, with as little messing around in PhotoShop as I can manage.
Thanks to the V&A for hosting an excellent event, to Chris and his team for leading a very inspiring and educational course, and to Soledad and her companions for working very hard, tirelessly and without complaint, and presenting us with some wonderful movements and shapes to work with.
