Thank you for the positive feedback. I will admit - the most helpful piece of equipment that day was the air compressor to clean up the dancer. :-)

Behind The Lens

Location
This shoot was taken on a stage that I have access too. With flour going everywhere I knew I needed complete control of light and wind.
Time
This shoot was a long time in the making. I had been approached by a dancer who wanted to do something 'fun' and different. I had seen flour shoots before and have always wanted to try one myself. Both of our schedules finally lined and we connected! The shoot lasted a few hours. She was a great sport about taking directions and making slight adjustments to make the photos come to life.
Lighting
This is a 2 light setup. I key (studio strobe) and one speedlight acting as a hair light and to back light the flour. I had the hair light about 45 degress to the right of the dancer.
Equipment
My main body is a Canon 7D. This was taken with wide angle lens.
Inspiration
I've always been a fan of dance and the performing arts. I've seen dance shoots using water or flour.
Editing
This was processed in Lightroom. I sent it over to photoshop only to remove a floorboard that you could see behind the dancer. In lightroom I brought up the contrast and details and brought down the blacks.
In my camera bag
Main body - Canon 7D Lens 17-40 L-series 4.0 70-200 2.8 50mm 1.2 2 speedlites
Feedback
I spend a lot of time planning and doing my homework before the shoot. Once I'm with the dancer (or model) I like to show examples of what I am trying to do. Its a total team effort. She was able to bring ideas as to movement that I would not have known about. It's a collaboration and I love the process.
