Kindred Spirits

I finally got round to cleaning out the feathers in the green room, but not before doing one last ballet photoshoot. This time I was joined by Kale Lazarick and Lucile Boulay, two incredibly talented dancers from the Royal Swedish Ballet School. Looking back at the different feather photoshoots it is fun to see how it has evolved and how each dancer brings their own personality to the photos.

As the sun set it got progressively darker, so we decided to experiment with some long exposure photos. Here the dancers would alternate between standing still and moving for 2-4 seconds.

Many thanks to Kale and Lucile for a fun evening photoshoot!
