Formal Dancers

My friends Tom & Susan

I recently photographed Tom & Susan in our studio for a publicity/advertising photo that we can use in our wedding ads. They have taken lessons from Jen at the “Balanced Body” studio just down from our shop at “The Fort” in McHenry. They also take Yoga with my wife Sandy and are two of the most in shape people I know! Tom is also a runner. We spent about 40 minutes trying to get a few different poses that would work well for our purposes. The trick was to actually catch them in mid-step while having the lighting set up to properly expose them. They were really intent on giving me a good image and we took exposure after exposure to get the proper arm extension or foot position, etc., etc. We did laugh alot and had a good time during the whole process! When work is like this, how can I call it work? I love capturing people doing things they enjoy together or in their element.
