More from the past

Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

Here’s another of my old dance concert photos. This one has been hanging in my living room for pretty much the last 25 years. The dancer is Marcia Sakamoto, a visiting artist at the concert that was advertised by the flyer from my last post. Again, this was shot on film, Tri-X exposed at 1600 […]

Another from the old days

Friday, November 23rd, 2007

Back to the archives today. I hope everyone in the US had a good Thanksgiving yesterday. Ours was very pleasant. Today we’ll have some old friends visiting and tomorrow the daughters will show up and we’ll do another feast. This is a pretty bad copy of a poster and program I photographed back at OU […]

Dancer in flight

Tuesday, November 20th, 2007

Last week I took a bunch of my studio gear down to Ohio U and set it up in one of the rehearsal studios at the School of Dance. This gave me a chance to test how my current studio setup works for photographing dance. I took the biggest backdrop I have and all my […]

Lost Process

Saturday, November 17th, 2007

Those of you younger than about 40 may not know that copy machines used to be only black and white. Along there in the 70s color copiers started showing up. They were awful. But it was color. And someone figured out that you could set up a slide projector and a mirror and project slides […]

Life of Dance

Wednesday, November 14th, 2007

Dance has most of my attention these days, in case you hadn’t noticed. Contrary to some comments I’ve heard, I have not quit doing figure photography and have no plans to. But dance is now the main thing I’m interested in photographing. Figure work will continue, but no longer as my primary subject matter. And […]

Studio Dance

Saturday, November 10th, 2007

I’ve finally finished the editing of the dance concert I photographed at Ohio U a couple weeks ago. I ended up with about 2100 photos. They needed noise reduction and individual tweaking of exposure on each shot. It took Noise Ninja about 36 hours to run all those files. Then I used ACDSee to batch […]

More Dance from the Past

Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Here’s another of my old dance photos. This is from a concert at Ohio University in 1975. The dancers are Lisa Eck and David Novitz. I’m afraid I don’t have a record of who was the choreographer for this piece. Ohio University School of Dance faculty members Gladys Bailin, Les Ditson and Pat Welling were […]

I’ve done some digging around in the attic and found some of my old dance photos. These are from the dance, “Shakers” by Doris Humphrey. Doris Humphrey died in 1958, but this dance was performed at Ohio University in 1970 thanks to a system of writing down, or scoring, a dance that was used to […]

All My Life’s A Circle

Friday, November 2nd, 2007

Almost 40 years ago when I was a clueless 17 year old photographer I walked in to the dance department at Ohio University looking for something to photograph. I had never seen anything like modern dance before. It wasn’t something I was likely to encounter in the small town where I grew up and it […]
