Capturing movement takes instinct
Photography for Dance & Gymnastics in Charlottesville
Dance and Gymnastics put our bodies into artistic motion. sometimes moving quickly, sometimes displaying a grace of no movement at all. In either case, a photographer must learn to use her camera differently. Capturing an image of a dancer is different than creating a portrait, although the image of the dancer or gymnast may in fact be a portrait. The framing for this photograph may be different, as Dance a gymnastic photos are taken from at least head to toe. Because her subjects are moving, Liz Knutsen must now utilize her instincts to often times predict where her subjects will be in their performance or routine to get the perfect shot. Of course, we know that she has been taking photographs for dance and gymnastics for a long time, which takes prediction out of the entire exercise and makes it more natural.
In addition, Liz Knutsen Photography provides dance and gymnastics mini sessions. You can learn more about her mini sessions here→
