A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending yet another Hudson Valley Click shootout event. The theme was “Sports and Fitness” and it was held at the YMCA in Middletown, NY.
In preparation for the shoot I did some image searching for inspiration. I decided this would be a great opportunity to pursue a type of images that I had been wanting to make for a while – black and white “near silhouette” images of dance/yoga poses. This is a theme I intend to continue working with, in appreciation of the beauty of the human form and the poses we can make.
My lighting was achieved with one flash bouncing off a mirror to the side and one flash backlighting the wall/model.
I worked principally with three models: Rajon Miller, Cheryl Crist and Elise Alexandria.
