Somewhere Over the Rainbow Ballet Production poster- The Wizard of Oz!
This set of images was created when the local ballet, the International Academy of Dance decided to put on a show with Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz as the theme.
I decided to photograph the ballerina over a simple white backdrop so that it would be simple to complete the artwork around the dancer. The magic was done in Photoshop later. The ballerina was photographed with a real dog.
These are the original photographs, a very simple setup with a portable white backdrop and backdrop stand. I used one light, a simple Yongnuo 685 Speedlight on a light stand, about 45 degrees off camera (OCF), with a fast shutter to catch the movement of her dress.
