Studio dance photographer Derrick Senior allows the expressive and rhythmic movement of dance to shine through the art of photography. For a recent session with dancer Amanda Rose, Senior used a Sony RX10II to capture each and every one of the dancer’s elegant gestures in an “ultra slow-motion” (200-1000FPS) video.
In one particularly spectacular moment, the high speed dance photographer prompted his muse to release a stream of flour into the air while executing a distinctly beautiful move. This resulted in a one-of-a-kind image that embodies the meticulous nature of dance. The final photo wound up being a stunning document of movement, while also presenting a surreal image of an angelic ballerina with her “wings” spread out.
Senior’s accompanying video gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at his artistic technique. Check out the short clip, below.
