Ballerina at Sunset

Over the Easter break I did several photo shoots down at the beach, this is another of my favorite models, My Ballerina (She appeared in my Feet & Shoes Photo Challenge). We wanted to do an Arts style shoot on the beach during sunset, with the wind blowing a gauzy, filmy material around like a surreal dream; problem – No Wind! For days we waited and waited and in the end on our final day at the beach we just had to become creative. Caity danced on the beach with various different materials trying to get some’ lift’, we also tried just throwing the material up, and also holding it out. I ended up using various different filters and effects to create a dreamy surreal look as well as a B&W Series for movement. A wind machine probably would have worked better in a studio and I could have also used Photoshop to add a sunset beach background, but we wanted the real deal. Looking back on it now I should have also arranged on perhaps a dress or slip or something a little more dramatic as well. For next time maybe!Ballerina at Sunset--7
