Just like in Part I of my Dance Series, my goal for this shoot was to capture emotion, as well as the expressiveness and strength of the body. This series has definitely pushed me more out of my comfort zone than my other shoots, as I have little experience with artificial lighting and working in a studio. I definitely believe that trying new things is really important though, as it allows for growth. Since I did the entire first part of this series in a studio, I wanted to experiment more in a lifestyle setting. However, I still really liked the look of the studio, so decided to shoot in both locations. A big shout out to Meredith, who is an extremely talented and versatile dancer. She was honestly able to do every idea I had. Enjoy some of my favorites below.
