I am getting better at ballet photography. Having seem the routines a couple of times now, I can recognize moves/ positions, and know that they're coming up so I'm ready to photograph them. But, these photos are not of ballet dancers. These are jazz dancers, also practicing in the same dance building. The ballet book is to feature friends of Kathy Mata Ballet too.
The colors were definitely fun to work with; they really stood out against the all white room. The woman in the middle of the top pic is the teacher (leader?) I actually don't know much about them; I was brought quite suddenly into their practice studio and I just started clicking.
(Monday) Just found out: they are The Scratch 4 Bloomin, By Saki Suto.
