Fun with Mirrors

Penn Dance Company Class with Rache Kantra Beal

So this week’s photo column post is yet another visit to Penn Dance Class this time led by Rachel Kantra Beal. I will say mirrors in a studio are one of the easiest ways to add a little something extra to a shot. I will admit that I cannot believe how perfect the timing was on this shot. Everything about it just came together perfectly some of which was planned and some just lucky timing. It’s fun to play with the with the reflections and see what interesting to perspectives you can come up with…

Think for my next and final post for the year I may do an abbreviated year in dance photos that i’ve shot. Some images that have appeared here and some that you haven’t seen.

Happy Holidays!!!

Be sure to stop back next week…
