Dancers in Motion

by Carla DLM 

by Yudhistira Yogasara

The art of photographing dancers with a slow shutter speed in order to capture their movements through motion blur is a well-established technique. Mastering this technique is not easy, but it leads to delightful results when it is correctly implemented. In order to get good results, it is necessary to slow down the shutter speed on camera while the subject is moving over a dark background and with proper light. A proper combination of movement captured on camera, digital edition and the photographer’s creativity will produce images that captivate the observer without doubts.

I particularly enjoy this kind of photography, especially when it combines a lot of movement and subject details. A contradiction I love to implement in my own work.

Here is a selection I found in 1x. All of them have a particular beauty that invites to a second look.
