Couple more dancers from the Joffrey contacted me to do a photo shoot, so we headed to the beach, and then over to Lincoln Park.

Comments welcome.

Thanks, Doug! I really thought at least some of them were going to fly away when Aaron was jumping, but they just sat there like they had paid to see the performance. Pretty funny.

Thanks! Got lucky with the timing of that wave and his jump.

Very nice

I would definitely lose the vertical poles and distant boat in the seagull shot, would take it from great to epic

(3) and (4) would benefit from less DOF, the backgrounds are a bit distracting and take away from the ethereal feel that these could have.

With a bit more attention to detail / post-processing, these would be over the moon great.

thanks, Greg. I did consider removing the poles, and in the end decided to keep them in. They're a part of what the beach is known for and for a local, actually would seem weird without them.

You have managed to combine two of my favorite art forms wonderfully, and I am appreciative of that.

My first thought as I looked at the first image was, "There aren't any sea gulls..." Second shot more than made up for it.

The first picture is lovely. Colors. Speed. Jump. I wasn't there, but ... it looks like there might be safety concerns. Are the waves really breaking over the dock/pier? Anyhow, I won't make any further comments, because I really don't know what the conditions were.

The second shot is also great, especially his leap. The last two are good, but this time around the jumps caught me.

Thanks for sharing.

Dave

Thanks, Dave! My first concern when photographing dancers outdoors is safety. One picture would never be worth even the risk of them getting injured. In this case, we were on this concrete pier that extended about about 150 feet into Lake Michigan. The water was a little choppy and it did come over onto the pier, but it was never so much that they were in any risk. In fact, the wave you see in this picture was the largest wave we saw during the 20 minutes we were shooting on this pier, and it was pure serendipity that it was there at the peak of his jump.
