8 Dancers and 3 Photographers

doing something slightly different for today's post :) some couple weeks ago, me and carissa's friends rented out a studio in west jakarta and we basically had a blast. dont laugh but i felt like a pro having all of these light boxes with the wireless thing attached on the camera. lol.. it was my first time working with lighting as well (and the 2 other photographers had NO SINGLE idea about lighting too), so we all basically did the trial and error thing.. i got lots of "blacked out" photos when all 3 photographers realeased the shutter at the same time. In the end, I decided to take the wireless flash transmitter on and off constantly. some "scenes" worked well with the natural light and some not really. nevertheless, we had fun blamming each other for the black images anyway ;)
Anyway, I do hope you enjoy these photos ! constructive criticism are highly welcomed !


special thanks to the models : nadia, wiwie, josephine holie, lius putri, cindy, inez, carrisa. 
and to the other photographers : hana and wicianto for a great time !

Hi Michelle,

Melai said...

I love this post michelle :)
You know what, I was a modern ballet dancer/jazz/contemporary dancer when I was younger but now I've shifted to hiphop dancing. So posts like this really strikes my heart.

My favorite is the 4th to the last photo. Did you edit it? I'm not so good in photoshop/editing photos. If you have time to make tutorials, please do. I'd love to learn :)

Yes I love Center Stage too!! I watched all sorts of dance movies! :)

hearts,
Melai of Style and Soul

S.Elisabeth said...

Oh my gosh I love these shots! And I LOVE that you have a Center Stage inspired one. That movie is always a blast to watch (especially the end dance, no matter that it was realistically impossible!). I would give you constructive criticism on lighting and such, but I have no clue about any of that, and they all look gorgeous to me!

Great shots! It must've been so much fun. I'd love to do that one day too with my beloved Nikon. ;o)
