As much as I love my live/jump loft, it’s just not quite big enough for dance photography. So it was a lot of fun this past Saturday to rent a bigger space for half a day. It’s hard to believe that the last time I did this was almost a year ago.
Pulling together a shoot in just seven days was challenging. I was on the prowl for capoeristas because I noticed that I had no upside down movement in my 52 Project. And, for the first time, I put an ad on craigslist to find dancers. The response was small but rich.
Superstar Kash “pHlauZ” Gaines showed up with half of his closet for wardrobe changes. He and his friend Daniel “Silver” Fiamingo also came with a list of b-boy moves and freezes to run through for me. This was move #3 on their list, and I caught it on the first try.
Upside down? Check!
