Workshops: flour ballet

Join me in the studio for a unique opportunity to create some amazing artistic ‘flour ballet’ photographs as professional model, Ayla Rose, performs her incredible leaps surrounded by clouds of flour. Using high speed flash, we will capture Ayla in mid-air in some powerful poses that will result in some incredible photographs that will enhance your portfolio and, for anyone entering photographic competitions, could provide some award winning images. Being both a fully trained dancer and experienced art nude model, Ayla has the ability to create graceful and elegant shapes  with her body and will be reaching heights not reached by other models!

The shoots will take place in three hour slots and will be limited to four photographers per session. This will give plenty of opportunity for each photographer to capture plenty of images of Ayla as she performs her acrobatics and we will also be creating swirls of flour using her hair. The small selection above will give you some idea of the types of images we will be creating.

Equipment required:

Camera body:
DSLR with a standard hotshoe to enable flash trigger to be fitted. If your camera has a unique hot shoe e.g. Sony, please contact me before booking.

Lens choice:
wide zoom such as a 24-70mm or a 50mm – this range of focal lengths is better suited to the ‘flowing hair’ type of image
Telephoto such as a 70-200mm – ideal for capturing Ayla in mid-air while eliminating the background distractions

Included in the workshop fee:

All model fees and use of studio including Profoto B1 high speed flash. This is not a lighting course but tuition will be given as to what settings are required for your camera. You should understand how to put your camera into manual exposure.

~ Please be aware this workshop involves artistic nudity as shown in the images above. ~
