Dance of the Sugar Plum Finals Week.

In preparation for my final portrait class portfolio I have been shooting portraits pretty much non-stop for a couple of weeks. I shot some in the studio, some outside with natural light, and others were shot indoors on location with studio lighting. My roommate Camille and her sister Katherine were rehearsing their parts in Ballet Art's Nutcracker, and I came along to make some portraits. I love photographing dancers. I believe a dancer's body is the human form at it's absolute best. Strength, grace and expression. Who doesn't want to photograph that?
