Caroline Grace – Asaph Dance Ensemble

Our last shoot for 2012 was with a talented young dancer who we have shot before, Caroline Grace! I wanted to do some formal studio shots in black and white or at least more mono-chromatic images. Grace and the Owner of her studio, The Asaph Dance Ensemble in Manassas Va., both graciously agreed to help. It was a rainy day and I had my nephew along to learn studio lighting techniques and to carry the heavy equipment! I love these images and hope you do as well!

We hope you enjoy these images as much as we enjoying sharing them with you and we hope you consider supporting this project to bring the beauty of dance to a wider audience by purchasing one of our limited edition prints at our website: www.bpaydenphotography.com/store

“Let them praise his name with dancing, making melody to him with tambourine and lyre!”

Sara – Old Town Fredericksburg

Followers of this blog and art project will no doubt recognize Sara as a frequent participant in this project, Sara has been an enthusiastic model as well as a source of encouragement and inspiration! For this latest shoot with Sara I envisioned a vintage look which was accomplished both in post production and choosing to shoot in old town Fredericksburg to utilize the warm inviting architecture as well as shooting at sunset to maximize the golden light at the end of the day. Sara is featured in one more shoot in the 2011 shooting season for this project, keep an eye out for her beautiful fall mountain images!

We hope you enjoy these images as much as we enjoying sharing them with you and we hope you consider supporting this project to bring the beauty of dance to a wider audience by purchasing one of our limited edition prints at our website: www.bpaydenphotography.com/store
