- When we first started conversing about a hip-hop class photo shoot
I Started building and shaping the studio in my head; mirrors everywhere, no curtains, a different parquet floor color and a much more focused lighting.
As soon as I arrived to the studio I preferred to put my imagination aside Because what I saw was a dance studio that’s a bit challenging for shooting,
I couldn’t deliver to the scene the frames I have already built in my imagination
I started shooting and I didn’t know to which direction I was headed… I went back home and started editing the pictures.
As I started recollecting my moments in the studio with the dancers and their movements, I realized that I have to connect with their movements, while learning the chirography, talking walking and even when they are looking straight into my lense.
it wasn’t easy but with my gained knowledge I managed to choose the pictures I connected with the most.
in the second session I was in a situation not that odd to me but difficult to most photographers; "night photography". But I was actually thrilled because ive went through it technically and in the field many times, so this time I was more focused and I knew what I had to do.
Though it was difficult and challenging, personally I enjoyed it and It was a great experience; shooting and being on location is beyond the pictures, it’s the exposure to new worlds, new people, new ideas and new adventures.
