Floating on the ropes by j-Photography

This portrait is all about serenity. And about trust. The studio setup was reasonably complex and model’s safety was a paramount. She is, actually, floating on those three ropes and there i no trickery or photoshop involved.

This kind of photography is my favourite: Slightly abstract yet featuring a person and a clear emotion.

Beautiful Young Family

A beautiful young family visited my studio for a photography session. They wanted me to focus mostly on their young daughter but also to capture a few family group photographs.  It was smiles all around and that made for a relaxed atmoshpehere and equally relaxed subjects. It did not take long before we were right into it and started taking some nice portraits.

She is a little princess, there is no doubt about that. Camera loves her and she loves the camera, a winning combination! I used an very old rocking chair that worked really well with her dress and she is very relaxed and most natural in it.

She is not quite ready yet to jump into her mum’s heels but it probably won’t be too long before that happens. 🙂 Still some growing to do…

Well, this almost looks like she is dancing. Lovely dress works well with the somewhat low-key nature of this portrait.

What a fantastic family! I sincerely hope to see them again soon and see if those heels will do the trick then.

Elegance

There are very few things as elegant and as passionate as Latino dancers. Particularly really good ones such as this fantastic pair.

Even in the controlled environment of a photography studio, photographing them was not a simple and easy undertaking. It was couple of hours of hard work for all of us but in the end I do believe it really payed off.

Fluid and beautiful dance offers many photographic opportunities and each movement is a piece of art in itself. Combine that with beautiful, elegant costumes and you have a real treat playing out right in front of your lens. It was almost an overwhelming visual experience of movement and beauty.

Countless hours of training…  total determination…  perseverance…

These are the keys key to their success.

I can relate to this as well as I am aware of all the hard work that I myself have put into my professional photography and I  hope it shows in the photos.

This award-winning couple has already set their sights beyond New Zealand and there is no stopping them! Last time I checked, they were throttling the globe in their conquest of the dance stages following a win at a major New Zealand competition.

People beware, these two will dance right into your hearts!

This is the kind of photography that I really enjoy as it is both meaningful, full of emotion and captures truly awesome people doing what they love to do.

I hope to see these guys again some time soon so that we can push my photography way outside of my zone of comfort and capture something truly unique again.
