Two lovely talented ballerina's


As you know I like to take pictures and I was looking for a new challenge for my photography. 
I would love to improve my skills in taking photoshoots of people.
For me taking pictures is something like making a quilt or knitting a sweater.  It all has to do with creativity. Finishing a shoot has the same feeling as finishing a quilt. 

A few days ago I was so lucky to do a photoshoot with two very talented ballerina's with this result.













 I will end this post with this picture.
It is one of the most beautiful pictures I ever took. 
To me it is almost perfection. The pose of the ballerina Rozemarijn, the train, the clock, the light, everything at this picture makes me happy.
Thank you Rozemarijn and Bente for your impressive posing, your smiles, your patience and the lovely afternoon we had.

Lucy these are beautiful! I agree with yo about your last photo - although I have several other favourites in this selection too. Excellent work! I rarely photograph people but know what you mean about the creativity and satisfaction of photography. Both photography and sewing are great passions for me.

Oh wow. Wat een indrukwekkende serie foto's. Wat een prachtige foto's en wat een prachtige danseressen. Heel bijzonder ook die foto's van hun samen, zo synchroon. Ben een groot liefhebber van (klassiek) ballet en weet dat dat heel moeilijk is om voor elkaar te krijgen. De dames zijn zeer getalenteerd. En jij ook, ongetwijfeld buitengewoon lastig om dat exacte moment vast te leggen. Chapeau voor jullie allemaal!

Wat ontzettend mooi Lucy!!
Om tot dit resultaat te komen heb je niet alleen prima ballerina's maar ook een prima fotografe nodig. Ik denk dat dit een zéér intensieve shoot geweest is. Bij een shoot heb je normaal gezien iemand die meekijkt of alles klopt (haar, kleding, locatie enz.) zodat de fotograaf zich vooral kan bezig houden met het nemen van de foto's. Als jij dit allemaal in je eentje hebt gedaan dan ben ik zéér onder de indruk! De locaties zijn ontzettend goed gekozen. De sprongen en poses van de ballerina's zijn prachtig. Een dikke proficiat voor jou en de meisjes. Wat een geweldig mooi resultaat!!
Groetjes, Liliane

Lucy, these are some of the most beautiful photos I've seen in quite a while. You are truly an artist not only with photography but with your stunning quilts. I appreciate anyone who has the eye for photos, I share your love of creating quilts but also the fact that all of my grandparents come from the Netherlands which makes my a Dutch girl too. Thanks for sharing.
