Dance Photography Personal Project: Juan and Khalil by Sarah Holden

It's been a while since I started a personal project.  Creating artwork for fun is important no matter what type of artist you are.   This summer I decided to start meeting and photographing dancers.  Photographing people in motion has always been a love of mine, whether it be martial arts, dancing, or children jumping on a bed.  

I love to photograph dancing because you never REALLY know what the camera will capture.  You can try to time your shots right, but you can't freeze someone in the air and adjust the lighting or tilt their head.  It makes getting a cool photo much more special. 

Below are two young gentleman named Juan and Khalil.  (Juan is the gentleman doing an impressive split and Khalil is the gentleman that loves to be on his toes)  These photos will be the first of many dance photographs I'll be creating this year.  Hopefully I'll learn a dance move or two along the way, but I'll probably just stick to photography.
