Ballet and Audrey
My mission this past Monday: get out the camera and celebrate the end of winter with the lush green of Central Park. Brittany and I got up early to take advantage of the soft gray, slightly foggy sky. FYI: cloudy is better for outdoor shoots when you’re just bringing a camera with no extra lighting gear! It’s funny, normally the gray weather doesn’t put me in the best of moods, but when I have a project like this, I’m all too happy to run around in the mist.
I’m going to show you these in more than one post. This is the first look we did…inspired by the movie “Funny Face” with Audrey Hepburn. I wasn’t allowed to watch TV as a child (a good thing in my opinion), but I did get to watch a lot of musicals…my mother got me hooked at a young age. “Funny Face” is one of my favorites…of course it is, it has a photographer in it 😉
Side note: I learned that dancers go through their pointe shoes in 2 weeks, sometimes even 2 days!
