Yesterday I met up with Theodore Girvan and Galina Zelenina from the Royal Swedish Ballet School for a morning photoshoot at Hagaparken in Stockholm. The weather forecast said clear skies until lunchtime, and sub-zero degrees. We started at sunrise, to make the most of the sunlight. I recently bought a second-hand Nikkor 200mm f/2 lens at Hegethorns and this was the first time I used my new lens for a dance photoshoot. It is incredibly heavy, weighing in at 2.9 kg, so I had also acquired a monopod to make my life a bit easier.
After taking the above photos we took a well-earned hot chocolate break at Stallmästargården and planned the second half of the photoshoot. When it is this cold it is a good idea to know what poses you will be photographing.
Many thanks to Theo and Galina for a fun forenoon photoshoot!
