Dance is a poem of which each movement is a word. -Mata Hari

Recently I was at a workshop with Professional Photographers of San Diego County where we had the opportunity to photograph two women from the California Ballet. Ana and Tess are both amazing athletes and both very easy and fun to work with. I love posing people and I found great joy in asking the dancers to slowly move from one step into another to photograph their movements. Watching their physical strength and control was so beautiful. Here are some of the images I created from my time with them. I say created because I was able to play with the images, I changed skies, backgrounds, played with paint added textures and stuff like that. I hope you enjoy the images.
