Very nice! It's nice to see you try new things. #3 and #6 are my favs.
I have a question. I see that in many of the photos, her fingers are splayed. Is that considered good form? Since you are doing this for audition photos, the more knowledgeable you are of the little things, the more you could help them out.
Look at #4 as an example. It may be perfectly acceptable for her fingers to be apart like that, but I know you've made enough friends in the ballet circle that you could get some guidance. On #6, look how much...Show more →
Thanks, Doug! Especially glad to hear your faves.
I work with a couple dance companies with varying levels of both instruction and talent. This girl is from Ohio but living in Chicago to attend Ballet Chicago, the premier dance school in the city, and one of the best in the country. They get a lot of dancers like that, coming from all over the country and a number of other countries as well.
With the more localized dance schools, I do tend to have to give some direction on the details like that. But in this case, esp with this Ballet Chicago dancer, I don't have to give them any direction. I always show the shots and we look at their fingers, their toes, their hips, the curve of their arms, everything. She did have another dancer here to help her look at the pictures to make sure everything is in place.
But yeah, their fingers are supposed to be like that. Sometimes, depending on what angle I'm shooting, they can look weird.
