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

Denis – City Dock Park – Fredericksburg, VA.

For this shoot, I was contacted by a friend Denis and asked if I had considered any male dancers for my Poetry of Motion project. I had been in contact with several male dancers but conflicts of one kind or another always made the shoots impossible to schedule. Denis and I put this shoot together in Fredericksburg in 1 day and shot it the next as Denis was leaving town to dance for another ballet theater. Denis was instrumental in the posing and action shots for this shoot and I love the way we were able to capture his graceful leaps that portray perfectly the theme of this project, The Poetry of Motion.
