Rachel – Ballerina and pointe dancer

Here are the portraits of Rachel, a friend of mine from Brunel. She dances and does it well. :)

As a part of my Art of Dance project, I photographed different dancers that practice different types of dance. Hip hop, waacking, street and so on. Rachel does ballet, pointe and few other styles. And she is a gymnast as well.

After our session for the dance project, she posed for some portraits. Funny thing, she doesn’t like to be photographed up close for portraits and she said she hates them. Hmmm … I think the pictures came out really good. I like the colours, the pink accent on hair. Also, black and white ones have something interesting in them.

I hope that Rachel will change her mind about portraits in general :) And I hope she will like the composites for the dance project. Unfortunately, it will take a bit more to process them in Photoshop. Currently, I am in Italy on skiing holiday and I packed everything with me. Except my little Wacom tablet to edit the images in Photoshop :( I checked 3 times if I have everything. But still didn’t pack the tablet. Oh, well, enjoy the portraits for now :) More images coming soon-ish.
