Time: 2 pm to 6 pm
Location: The Carriage House Studio and Gallery (Logan Circle)
The Carriage House Studio and Gallery is presenting a Dance Photography Weekend, including an exhibit of dance photography (Friday), seminar for the photographers (Saturday), and to top it all off, a dance photography workshop (Sunday)!
In one afternoon, you will create, or expand your dance portfolio with two wonderful dancers as models!
Featured dancers are Kelly Mayfield of Contradiction Dance (http://contradictiondance.com) and Stormy Budwig, dance instructor and model.
Introduction: 2 pm – 3 pm:
• Presentation of handout with examples of great dance photography (Lois Greenfield and others…).
• Discussion by dancers about their perspective on challenges of dance photography and the physical demands.
• Technical aspects and challenges of dance photography, including motion/in flight/lighting and posing.
Photo Shoot: 3 pm – 6 pm:
A series of Mini Photo Shoots including floor movement, in flight and pre/post performance portraits. Each photographer has had the opportunity to direct and shoot the dancers on different sets. We will have various props, and a trampoline for aerial shots. The other photographers will also be shooting at this time, but not directing. The model who is not dancing, will be in a separate area of the studio posing with continuous (hot) lights.
Workshop Fee: $60 plus $15 for each model release.
Pocket Wizard Rental Fee: If you need one, you may rent one of the studios’ Pocket Wizards for a $10 fee.
Workshop Reservation Fee/Deposit of $25 Required
Workshop Participation: Limited to 8 photographers.
