Dance the Day Away

Dance with your heart – your body will follow.

So you are probably wondering what dance has to do with photography – I guess for me the two go together naturally. If it wasn’t for dance I would not have met Graham.

Dance has been a part of my life since I was 4, about the same age as this little dancer in the image above, and I met Graham at a dancing school when I was eleven.  As two photographers with a passion for dance it was only a matter of time before GT Studios offered  the opportunity to create photo experiences for dancers.

We dance because it is what we love to do.

 

After a reasonable break from dance I have recently returned. I love every minute of my contemporary class at Move Through Life Dance Studio and I hope that my renewed involvement will help when we are creating dance experiences. When I was little I always found it helpful if the teacher demonstrated the position for me. Likewise – I think it is nice if we can show our dancers the position we are asking for. I’m not suggesting I can do it as well as some of the dancers but at least I can ask for positions by name and know that we are getting it right!

When I was looking for dance quotes today I found this one form Bill Austin – it reminded me of when Graham and I would be learning dance routines and also where I am at the moment – “When you take dancing lessons, you learn steps and you learn steps and you learn steps. It can go on for a long time. And then one day, you just learn to dance, and it is so different. “

I love all our themed photo experiences but I have a secret passion for a Ballet or Dance Photo Experience and love when we are given the opportunity to help create a dream experience for a little dancer. Dance fits so beautifully with the basic beliefs that we build our business upon. We believe GT Studios is about people and the human connection. Dance also can be seen as this – we want to capture this form of expression  – the hopes and dreams of each dancer and turn them into art that can be displayed on the walls of their home – reminding them what they are working towards.

It is also important for us to give back to the dance community.  We recently enjoyed the Starlets SA Showtime concert and have given the Starlets families the opportunity to download their images from our website.

If you think your little dancer would like a Dance/Ballet Photo Experience give me a call on 0481 190 163  (or contact us here and I will call you). We can arrange a no obligation consultation to discuss some options.  The photo experience is a beautiful gift for your dancer and the framed images make gorgeous gifts too!

On a closing note I thought I should add that “Happiness is……finding the perfect dance partner…..and a photographer that understands dance! I found my perfect dance partner – hopefully we can be your perfect photographer – hear from you soon – Karen

Black & White or Colour

Do you have a preference for Black & White or Colour photography?

This is a question we ask when we are helping our clients custom design their photo experience. The answer will help decide the colour of clothes, the setting and even the style of photography.

It also depends on where the artwork is destined to hang – what the decor of the room is, what size it will be and whether it will be presented in a frame or as an acrylic or other presentation. However, sometimes it just comes down to personal taste and it is often nice to see the same image in both black & white and colour.

The image featured on the blog today was published in the “Gallery of Refined Art” Children’s Photography Wing this week. We chose to submit it in black and white.

I was really keen to know peoples opinion and so posted both a colour and black and white version on to Instagram to see the response – you can check out the numbers by going to our Instagram account.

This is the colour version followed by the same crop in black and white.

I am always amazed how a different crop can completely change the look of a photo too – but that will be another day’s blog!
