My last shoot in NYC…and a perfect day to post this wintery one since we just got hit with a snowstorm.
Maria contacted me about doing some shots of her skating, so off to Wollman Rink I went, armed with camera. This was really fun, and a challenge since I’ve never shot a skater before. With the dancers, it’s a little easier since they can strike a pose…yes, often it requires timing for kicks and jumps, but strap some blades to their feet and send them flying around a sheet of ice? Totally different ballgame! I had to learn her specific timing and be ready when she took off. Total blast. I learned all sorts of things about the life of a skater, and the differences between jumps. That’s always a cool bonus for me, getting to chat and learn about what the subject really loves to do.
