I’ve had the vision of photographing a real ballerina in my head for a while now. I finally brought it to life with the help of Ana, a very sweet and beautiful dancer. She was so natural in front of the camera. Posing and facial expressions were easy for her, she said it is her background in performing arts that helped her. She is so talented, just from the short time we were together I quickly realized what a true athlete dancers are. The jumps, the lines, the muscle tones.. all that of a seasoned athlete. She stood “on pointe” with ease and held it for as long as I needed to get the shots. Come along with me for our venture in the park and city and enjoy the movements of this angelic ballerina through my lens.
