I was commissioned to photograph the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet Co. I’ve always wanted to explore color and movement. Watching these amazingly talented dancers move made my ideas fly! Together we created these beautiful pieces that express emotion and the art of movement.
Shooting with the powder proved to be a challenging mess as well as technically trying, timing movement to the falling of the powder as well as colored corn starch in every bit of all my equipment.
Together we all were able to finesse the capturing in mid air and these images were created.
