Dance Photography in Erie: High Key Images

We’re getting close to dance photography season. Each winter, we capture images of dancers, in costume and sometimes in motion!

This image was from a special session that I do only for the competition teams – high key photography against a white background with lots of light.

I shoot high key with four lights: Two for the backdrop to blow it out, and a main and fill light in the front. You can see from the shadows of her arms cast onto her legs that the front lights were on either side of the camera and the light to camera right was the higher intensity main light.

Heather here has jumped about as high as she is tall. I left a bit of detail in the white background so she wasn’t floating on thin air.

It’s great to be able to capture the energy, art and motion of dancers and see the smile on their face when they see a perfect image of themselves.

Nice leap, Heather!
