Dancer On A Mission

Dancer On A Mission

Grace and confidence. Two things everyone should either possess or strive for. This is why I enjoy photographing dancers. Capturing a person in their own little world is magic. Here are a few of my favorite shots from an afternoon with Julia. Thanks to Ciara for assisting on the shoot!

For this shoot I mixed it up with natural light and strobes. My go to strobe is the Paul C. Buff Einstein E640. The quality of light and flash duration blows me away for action shoots. Perfection every time and I am also a big fan of their modifier durability and portability.

If you are looking for a “normal” engagement session, I officially don’t do them anymore. This engagement session is next level. The Latin Circus discovery happened on accident and my only regret is it seemed to be vacant that day or else we would have definitely tamed a lion. I’ve known these two characters for a while now and enjoy seeing two wacky people that genuinely care for one another. It’s a pleasure to shoot the reality of it all. When I asked Vin to lay down on a questionable furry rug and have Jenna rule over him like a Queen…they both did it. Top notch effort all around.

I haven’t really talked about my gear much lately. These days I shoot on the Sony A7RII which is definitely the most versatile camera body I’ve ever used. For both my photo and cinema work, there really hasn’t been anything engineered like this camera. The quality of the final images is slamming, the files are easy to work with and the dynamic range through the roof. Not to mention it has in-camera image stabilization. In the new year I will be transitioning over to Sony lenses. Far less weight, much sharper and less expense than the EOS mount lenses I currently use with a Metabones adapter. The Sony Carl Zeiss and G Master lenses are designed to take full advantage of all the bells and whistles the camera offers me.

Now let’s cut to the chase and behold the greatness of Vin and Jenna’s engagement session highlights!
