Posing Dance Style Portraits

This 7 part course is a must-see if you have a passion for dance photography. Sue teaches you how you have to go against what you may have learned for your typical portrait sessions in order to get the perfect dancer portrait. Dancer portraits look best with movement, long chins and necks, and eyes down. This can be very different from your traditional portrait shoots. Sue narrows down each part of the shoot in 7 different topics…

  • Dance Style for Non-Dancers- Learn how you can teach your non-dancing clients how to properly pose for a dance portrait. Focus on the bend in the elbows, the shape of the body, the touching of the body and ballet hands and wrists.
  • Creating Dancer Style Shapes- Sue shows you how to flow through some poses so your client’s body will create a beautiful, dancer type stance.
  • Posing with Tulle- In this segment, you will see how you can save some money by getting creative and making some of your own wardrobe pieces. You will also learn about how to structure the tulle to get a nice soft, romantic look. Remember… less can be more when it comes to tulle! 
  • Dancer Flow Posing- Watch as Sue’s assistant helps her produce the most breathtaking shots by producing a beautiful flow with the tulle and a fan.
  • Backlit Dancer- Sue shows you how you might have to break some of the lighting rules for a typical portrait shoot in order to get a beautiful dance portrait. She uses a window behind her backdrop for lighting and describes how she changes her ISO to get the look she’s after.
  • Black Dress Contrast- Katie does a wardrobe change to show the difference in contrast with a black dress.
  • Movement with Standing Poses- Create stunning movement in your dancer portraits by watching Sue as she poses Katie in various standing positions while producing beautiful movement.

After watching this course, you will gain more confidence in posing dance style portraits. Remember, confidence is key when it comes to photography!
