Sean Graham and students at London Studio Centre
Public dance workshops are quite a challenge. While those in a troupe or experienced professional dancers aren’t likely to be disturbed by flash photography and by the end of the session are likely to be well enough synchronised to make interesting shots, enthusiasts or those familiar with other dance forms can not be treated the same. You’re indoors, the lighting’s not good, using the flash is likely to distract those studying and so is sprawling over the floor or climbing around the studio to get an interesting angle. So how do you get something worth publishing from the event?
In this case I decided to show the interaction between some of the participants while the shots I’ve sent to Dance Today concentrate on the expressions of the students as the workshop progressed.
