I wanted to do some dance photos in Cambridge, but it was quite cold. Luckily there was some time after a dress rehearsal in Corpus Playroom, so the dancers Hannah Copeland and Stefanie Mavrakou joined me together with actor Ellen McGrath for a couple of hours. We brought some talcum powder with us to play with.
Many thanks to Hannah, Stefanie and Ellen for a really fun photoshoot and to Corpus Playroom and ‘Dancing at Lughnas a’ for lending us their space. Would be cool to combine the talcum powder with gelled flashes next time, but that will probably have to wait until it is warmer so we can do it outside.
If you want to try something like this, be careful and make sure you clean your camera afterwards. When I did the previous flour shoot a little bit of flour found its way into the camera when I changed lenses a few days after cleaning. This time I have not dared change lenses yet. The 50 mm lens might just have to stay on a while longer. It is worth the risk though.
