I have been dreaming of photographing dance for a while now, so I was beyond excited when my long-time friend Jana agreed to this photoshoot! The preface was: “I have never photographed movement like this, so keep your expectations low!” We started right as the sun was setting, so a good number of the images turned out grainy and dark. That said, I think we got some good ones. Jana is a beautiful mover, and all-around wonderful person, so I knew some sort of magic was bound to happen, regardless of how novice a photographer I am! I’m really excited to do more of this, so Portland dancers let’s get together!
This was my first time developing film in Portland, and I figured out that I requested the wrong resolution quality on the CD I ordered, so the images don’t look as clear as they do in the prints. Learned my lesson for next time!
Without further ado, take a look at how gorgeous my friend is!
