DEFYING GRAVITY

Filed at 9:33 am under by dcobranchi

I shot this one of Katelyn the other day. Ballerinas can only maintain First Arabesque for a second or two, but in this photo Katelyn looks like she could stay there forever.

Luck and 3 frames/second.

It’s kind of fun is to watch Katelyn and Chelsea pick apart the individual frames. To my amateur eye, two or three consecutive shots look identical. But the girls can spot minuscule flaws. The shot above was their favorite.

I was shooting this to send to Ballet Magnificat as part of the scholarship application process. Katelyn plans on going there for their Trainee program in Sept. 2011, but the current application is for their Summer Intensive.

Delaney does that with my photos of her on the horse. She has editorial approval over anything I post, and I usually get shot down because one of her feet is not exactly right, or her hands are too high on his neck, or some other flaw that I can’t see,

Katelyn is fanatical about her hands. The index finger needs to be up just a fraction, the middle finger down, the thumb pointing forward, and the wrist needs to be almost but not quite straight. 🙂

Beautiful photo!
Jessi does the same thing with her ballet photos too.
Of course I love them all but she is quite the critic.
On parents day we can take photos in class.
It is awesome to watch how much progress they make each year.
Jessi is in practice for Swan Lake coming up the end of this month.
She is not a swan yet but her class are Mazurka dancers.
Time flies & they grow up so fast!
