SIGMA Ambassador Heather Larkin


Creating portraits of dancers is a unique experience, but choosing the right lens and the right environment can turn your images into masterpieces! Come learn from SIGMA Ambassador Heather Larkin as she discusses the importance of environment and lens selection when photographing dancers! Heather’s extensive experience photographing ballet dancers in a variety of environments gives her a unique perspective (pun intended) on the topic.

The big question: What do you want to show in your images? Are you in an urban location where you want to include the buildings? Are you in a garden where you want to blur as much as possible? What lens will show off a dancer’s athleticism as much as possible? See how lens choice (and aperture settings) can change the depth of field and tell different stories. Learn how to take advantage of any location when creating dance portraits by selecting the right lens. Finally, think critically on what makes a good dance photo in order to correct mistakes in the field!

This class is also an excellent lead-in to our Dance Deep Dive Masterclass with SIGMA and Heather Larkin.
