Don’t know where to begin to photograph dancers? Jump right in for this day-long studio and location in-depth learning experience with SIGMA lenses and Heather Larkin. In this deep dive masterclass, you’ll learn what to look for in a good dance photo, and a few dance vocabulary terms so you can ask your ballet models to do what you’re envisioning. Then you’ll have the opportunity to test SIGMA loaner gear while you watch Heather as she poses the dancer for the best portraits in-studio in the Hunt’s Photo Melrose classroom, then you’ll take photos as well! After a short break, you’ll come back and shoot some super fun gel images with flying scarves and colored lighting while still putting the morning learning into practice, all with expert help along the way to ensure you get killer images when you’re done.
This workshop is an excellent opportunity for photographers of any skill level!

Prep and Follow Up, Too!

Included in this class will be an introductory webinar, Photography and Poise- Finding the Perfect Lens for Dance, and an image review/follow-up session where we’ll be able to review your images. This is an excellent opportunity to improve upon your dance photography from a professional dance photographer!
