SACRAMENTO BALLET AND DANCE PHOTOGRAPHY

Ballet dance is a unique form of art that originated in the fifteenth century during the Italian Renaissance. Since then, it has widespread to all the other countries, becoming a highly technical form of dance. Ballet dance is mainly accepted all over the world as one of the most artistic forms of dance entertainment admired by people of all ages. A lot of little girls praise gracefulness of ballerinas and want to be just like them. Becoming proficient in ballet dancing is not an easy task, and requires a strong spirit and many years of practice. To many ballerinas, the time that they spent practicing the technical aspects and perfecting their potential is a very huge and special part of their lives. Many lifetime friendships are made for many of these girls, and this, in part, is what our Sacramento ballet photographer wants to document.

BALLET - IS IT A DANCE OR A SPORT?

Different people may perceive it differently. For audience who are watching a beautiful ballet performance - ballerinas seem as professional dancers on the stage. But for ballerinas themselves, the practice that they are going through, equal to intensive training as all sports activities require. In summary, ballet is said to be a combination of choreography and art, graceful movements, costumes, and usually serious music. It is an artistic dance like no other, that is used to express different emotions or to tell a story. Through the centuries, traditional classical ballet dance that was choreographed with complex costumes and staging, has been replaced by the modern and contemporary ballet dance styles.

WHAT IS BALLET PHOTOGRAPHY?

Ballet dancing is one of the finest arts ever known to man, and photographing it is an art in itself. The graceful movements, unique costumes, the poetry in motion, and solemn music. Our professional ballet photography team will help you tailor a customized photo session that will highlight your gracefulness as a ballerina. Our Sacramento ballet photographers are dedicated to capturing pure magic and expression of the dancers, by creating artistic and timeless portraits. We know from personal experience that we don’t need to be professional dancers to take graceful photos of ballerinas. Ballet photography can be captured in many ways, depending on the photographer or dancer’s preferences. It can be done during a ballet show, at a recital, or by having an individual photoshoot with ballerina. The latter is the most popular way amongst high school seniors. Including ballet dance shots into the senior session is a great way of personalizing your photoshoot.

BALLET PICTURES IN STUDIO

Ballet photography is not just photographing faces, but you have to pay attention to posture, composition, and movement. Photographing ballet movement portraits in the studio has many advantages, and Bidun Studio Photography will explain to you what they are. Ballet dance is a form of art that’s like no other, and to capture ballerina’s gracefulness and spirit, some preparation is needed. Studio setting with many beautiful full height backdrops and customized lighting creates the perfect atmosphere for these artistic pictures. As ballet photographers, we really need to highlight the movement of the body, and being in the comfort of the studio allows us to spend as much time as we need for that perfect ballet picture. At the end of the day, it’s far more valuable to produce a few very striking images, rather than a series of ok-pictures.
