The Art of Dance Combined With The Art of Making a Huge Mess with Tanner

The Art of Dance Combined With The Art of Making a Huge Mess with Tanner

The latest and greatest shoot with Tanner took place at The Art Factory and we ran through quite a few different rooms and ended things with a flour mess all over the place. I used a combination of daylight and Einstein strobes for many of the shots. The shots with the flour turned out better than I had ever expected and I think you will agree.

My lens on the Sony A7RII was the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art. I am pretty psyched to be moving more toward using Sony E mount lenses as 2017 kicks in. They’re certainly comparable to

Lately you have been seeing a lot of dance work that I’ve been involved with. Since the beginning of 2015 I have been doing a lot of work with Capezio. That has inspired me to do dance shoots on my own to build up my own take on the artform. We’ve done two shoots recently. One at the studio and one at a nearby park. The snow isn’t very forgiving for dance, but it looks so great in the final shots. The lake was frozen and made for a serene backdrop. For the stair shot I faked sunset by putting an orange gel on a flash and having it low to the ground.  Zooming out the flash all the way helps give the effect of pure sunlight.

If you have children interested in dance near East Windsor, NJ I would recommend signing them up with Miss Melanie. I’ve done two shoots with her and Tanner and it’s obvious how great the teacher/student relationship is.
