NYC Ballet

Uploaded: April 16, 2011


I have some behind the scene images and blog post regarding the shoot. Sara was photographed on location in a studio setup. The backdrop was photographed by myself from the Brooklyn Bridge in October. I got lucky with a storm that moved in but had not completely covered the sun. Ten minutes later it was pouring and I was in a hurry looking for cover!
