Dance/Art Nude

Date:Saturday 12 March
Location:

Boudoir Salon 2.30pm / 5.30pm

Description:

The shape of movement/  Art nude
Photography is the art of the ‘frozen’ moment, while dance is the art of motion. Trying to capture and convey motion using the ‘still’ image can be a real challenge.

(But have no fear, I’m here to help). Anticipate the movement, the dancer will seemingly fall out of the air and come to life.

Using lighting and camera settings the photographer can help define the movement of the dancer. Another element to help describe this movement is composition. This can help lead the viewer’s eye around the image.

Description:

Photography is a still, frozen art while dance is an art of motion.
The challenge:  you need to make the viewer feel the movements and enjoy the dance even if it’s in just a single frame.
Since dance is more about movements, shutter speed settings will be vital to produce the effect you want to achieve.
Keep in mind that dance is a full body experience and a body is made up of many parts.
Don’t be afraid to focus on a specific hand motion or foot position while shooting.
