Movement

I've always wanted to shoot photos of a dancer. A couple months ago, I saw an image that inspired me to capture movement. In that moment, one of those little alarms started going off in my head and told me to combine the two. I had a few images in my head going into the shoot, but Kylie made it so much better than I could have imagined.

The other interesting thing about this day was that Kylie and I started by simply having her do one movement over and over and photographing it. Something wasn't working, though. We could both feel it. It wasn't until we had the idea to just have her improv to a song, that things started to mesh quickly. Most of these images are from the improv. This was a testament to how much better things go when you simply allow yourself to feel rather than control.
