This past Sunday I met up with Laura Kaljunen, Natasha Träger and Nicole Persson for a photoshoot at the Royal Swedish Opera. Our plan was to do some photos first in the Golden Hall before the audience would arrive for the concert, and then once they opened house, we would go explore and see what we could find. The first half of the photoshoot was shot with my 35 mm lens, to get as much of the grand surroundings as possible. For the second half I switched to my 50 mm lens.
After the finishing photographing in the Golden Hall we headed upstairs to one of the rehearsal rooms that was empty this afternoon. We wanted to do some studio-like dance portraits, and in one of the rooms was an old black paper backdrop that we borrowed.
Many thanks to Laura, Natasha and Nicole for a fun photoshoot, and a big thank you to the Royal Opera for letting us photograph there.
