Dance photography is something I didn’t know anything about until I saw these pictures and started asking questions.
I love to watch dancers. They fascinate me with their energy and grace. I love watching everything from Hula dancing to ballet. Dancing With the Stars was once one of my favorite shows but I’m a little tired of it now, although I do still view it occasionally.
My friend’s daughter, Jerrica, has been dancing through life almost since she was born. She just graduated from high school and is majoring in Business and Dance in college. She just tried out for Western Kentucky University’s Dance Team, The Topperettes and she made the team!
Photography Meets Dance
Besides being a gifted dancer, Jerrica is a beautiful girl. When I saw these pictures of her I asked her mom if I could share them with you.
The photographer is Wayne Garmon (see his contact information below) and he had seen some pictures on YouTube that he wanted to mimic. He researched the method, the lighting and the shutter speed.
He used LED lights he ordered from Amazon and made his own battery/light belt which he then attached to Jerrica to get the colorful effects.
As you can see, it was a great idea. The photography (and the subject) are beautiful!
A long time ago I took square dancing with my mom. Neither one of us was particularly good but it was a lot of fun. Now my dancing is limited to the Hotdog Dance with the grandchildren!
Do you or any of your grandchildren dance?
