russian dancer 5 by markdaughn russian dancer 5 by markdaughn
model: kristina sviritkova

publisher: mystique magazine [link]

The concept of the shoot was a dancer auditioning for a part, I was looking for reasons for her to move. This was her very first shoot and she was very nervous.

The lighting for this shoot was a little tricky because I wanted to be able to see the incandescent lights on the walls, but not let the sunlight outside become a massive glow. I think of lighting in layers and this shoot is a good illustration of that.

If you have any questions about this shoot please let me know.

She seems, very...electric, like there is lot's of energy she want's to out, but being behind the camera for the first time has her frozen in place. I really like your work, and how you capture not only your fans but models in awe. An inspiration sir, thank you for sharing your talent.

the nervous tension in her eyes is apparent, but adds a bit of humanly allure to the photo you wouldn't have otherwise. Nice.

I think she looks a bit shy or nervous, but it adds to her charisma. Great series!

Great lighting, but is it out of focus on purpose?

thank you, it is because of the very slow shutter speed used to capture the light on the wall in the background
