Lindsay Adler – Learn+ Episode 12: Dancers – April 2022
What is one surefire way to bring your images to life? Movement! What subjects are incredible at creating artful shapes with their bodies? Dancers!
Now I don’t proclaim to be a dancer photographer by any means… but I do feel that I can capture movement successfully and make a photo interesting enough no matter the subject. There are of course dancer photographers that are professionals who are intimately aware of the industry and some themselves are former dancers. I think this definitely helps in speaking the “language” that dancers have so you can develop a better rapport and ultimately achieve your desired final image.
With that being said, there are times you can rely on the talent of the dancers themselves, to just create beautiful images.
