Tall Dancing

D70 5033 Tall Dancing


When I retired from the day job some years ago, one of the things I started doing that I hadn’t been able to do when I had to report to work every day, was to start photographing dance again.  I fell in love with dance and dance photography way back when I was a freshman at Ohio University a long, long time ago.  So, I went back to the OU School of Dance and they graciously allowed me to again photograph their productions.

I’ve now reached a point in life where, once again, I find myself unable to make the commitment of time and energy that it takes to properly photograph a dance production.  But, over the years of shooting those productions I have fortunately made a few friends.  And every once in a while some of them will drop by my studio for some photos.  As long as I have a studio I’ll keep doing this work because it’s fun and it’s a way to help out my dancer friends.

It’s been almost a year since Lindsay came in and we did these photos for her.  In fact, it was November 2012.  And, yes, that’s how far behind I am with editing my photos.  Life has been like that for the past couple years.  That’s just one indication of why I had to stop spending a week at a time shooting dance productions at OU.  I just can’t seem to keep up any more.  Seems like I’m getting a bit old.

Lindsay also does hooping performances.  So, after a while the hoops came out and we did some photos with them.

And then Lindsay got really, really tall for a while.

Lindsay brought her friend and fellow performer, Jessica, along for this shoot.  Seems Jessica is pretty damn tall at times too.

It’s pretty amazing to see someone that tall dancing around in the studio.

What could you possibly add to all this to make it even more amazing?  Why an accordion, of course.

Don’t ever let anyone tell you that photography isn’t fun.
