Color Flour Dance with Holly Springs School of Dance
Color Flour Dance
Capturing someone else being artistic and creative is a big part of why I love being a photographer. In past years I have had the opportunity to shoot several “Dust and Dance” series. The unpredictable factor of the flour and the great skill of the dancer create a visual explosion. Thinking I had exhausted the idea, Marilyn Chappell of Holly Springs School of Dance asked me about doing a colorful shoot to coincide with the school’s yearly theme.
True Colors – Marilyn Chappell
“We chose this year’s theme after such a tumultuous time I think we’ve all learned a lot about who we are and what matters most to us. Expressing ourselves in truthful ways seems like the best gift we can offer the world right now.”
Running with their theme and some last-minute inspiration we created the following series in the dance school parking lot. Having the color added to the flour takes the movement of the dancer and the suspension of the particles in the air to a new level.
Making it Possible
A big “THANK YOU!” to the ladies of Springs Dance Company – Holly Springs School of Dance. They always go above and beyond to make each shoot perfect. Even when they don’t totally understand what the final image will look like. A dozen bags of flour, teamwork, and years of practice led to an amazing shoot.
