Color and Motion

I have been photographing people involved in dance, and other movement through space, for a number of years.  It all started with belly dancers, which allowed me to learn how to capture the color and motion of the dance. It includes ethnic dancers, modern dancers, ballroom dancers, even acrobats and twirling monks.   These images are comprised of a variety of performers, shot over a number of years, and in a variety of locations.  Capturing the excitement of the performance in still images, often by using a slow shutter speed, has been my focus. My goal is to use my camera and digital technology to give the viewer the same feeling that I experience.
