Dance photograph on location

After the recent shoot for the launch of the Pentax K-3 I had an opportunity to take the dancer from that project, Dana Benton, and one of the costumes from that project on location.  Honestly, I just didn't feel finished with working with that combination of Dana's amazing abilities and the movement the costume would allow.

The image was created with the Pentax 645D camera and a Pentax 75mm leaf shutter lens.  Lighting was provided by a Chimera OB 30 beauty dish.

My thanks to Janelle Hinkley who helped with choreography, and assistant Jon Rose for making this come together.  And to Dana, who somehow manage to control her goosebumps as the temperature dropped.
