Brilliant, Deri! And, the model knew what she was doing as you captured perfectly the dancer's musculature and form, which caught the light just right! ( I am the mother of a once professional dancer). #1545743

Thanks so much for the comment Nancy! I don't get a chance to take pictures of dancers or Cirque du Soliliel performers so this was really an awesome photoshoot for me. The lighting stations were set up inside the gym that they train in (an alternative gym with arial hook ups) so we had plenty of chances to get some good images... #10854127
