Dance Portraiture on Location in Manchester – Off Camera Flash Photography

Join Team Welshot, Miss Ellie and her students of The Dance Company for a day of portrait and dance photography on location in the Castlefield area of Manchester.  Using Off Camera Flash and natural/ambient lighting we will be working in small groups with 1:1 and group tuition to help you learn the skills and techniques needed to capture stunning portraits, movement and action, and classical ballet poses.  Your backdrop to capture your images will be the vibrant Castlefields, from the viaduct arches to the Castlefield Bowl, from canals to bridges and even a Roman fortification, this location will provide you with a wide variety of shooting experiences.

Your Dancers will be wearing classical dance costumes, think tutus and floating, swishy dresses but we will also have some styled, themed costumes with lots of props and accessories – think Bonnie & Clyde, and other themes, which will lend itself perfectly to this location.  Your Dancers/Models will be both Male and Female of varying ages but all will be led by Miss Ellie – ensuring that you will get photographs that have been perfectly posed and technically correct. From En Pointe to jumps, from posed headshots to those tiny details – this unique day of dance photography will be sure to enhance your skill and technical level and your photographic portfolio.
