Framed elasticity 2

Performance Festival in Norway, october 2017. Malin Bulow's work operates between performance and sculpture. She invited three dancers to activate, and the audience to experience the sculptural silence. In slow and expansive performative acts, bodies become natural extensions and conveyors of the sculpture. Bulow has developed a patter of movement which makes the composition appear like an elastic sculpture. The bodies are constrained with long tentacles, confused and bloated umbilical cords, to their own square frame.

Behind The Lens

This photo was taken during the Performance Art Festival in Hamar, Norway last year. I was hired to work there as a photographer. I was like: "OMG! This is a great opportunity to take some amazing pic!" And then it came my mind, that I just bought my new camera, a Sony a7II, so I dropped myself to the deep water, and without knowing the camera well, I started to work. That is one of my works I love the most!
It was a bit cloudy morning in October. So the nice lights I got there was pretty.
So there was that huge hall closed from public, I decided to use that time only for myself. Only me, the dancers and the artist were left in there, so I asked them if it is ok to photograph them. So before I start to shoot, we agreed to turn the lights off, and only use that pretty lights coming through the enormous, large windows. Those windows were parallel with this elastic stuff, and I decided to use the opposite side, and I was kneeling down when I realised how perfect is that diffused light could become my background. And it also gave a nice reflecting on the floor.
I used my 4-5 days old new camera, a Sony a7II with a Sony 50mm.
I have never seen something like this before. This performance was kind of silent, the dancers moved so slow
I always shoot RAW, so I have better chances to "play" with the tones, colours, and so on. I turned this one to B&W, because I wanted a more dramatic impression. I added some more contrast, and there were som dust on the ground, but I didn't need to do anything else.
In my camera bag
To be honest... I always take with me the whole equipment I have right now. Before Sony I had a Canon 60D that I gave to my Daddy. So I take always with me: Sony a7II, Sony 50mm 1.8, the Sigma adapter for Canon lenses (MC-11), Sigma 85mm 1.8, Sigma 24-105 f4 Art, and a Sigma 150mm 2.8 macro. I had a Nest tripod that I lost somehow, but it was always with me. Instead of this now I use the Manfrotto Pixi minitripod. This is not much, but I am satisfied with this stuff. I love them.
First: always ask, if you get permission to take AND use the photo later. Second: to find and use the right angle wins everything. Don't forget about the rules (Golden ratio, rule of Thirds). Then check the right settings. What is your point, what do you want to show on your photo? Find out which aperture and shutter speed you need, what kind of results you want. Here I wanted to have shallow depth of field, so the aperture was 1.8, shutter speed 1/125 - which has to be fast enough to handheld and get sharp picture, and ISO 2000. Try other levels, like a higher one or even lay down, so the results won't be usual.
