This feels like a blast from the past. Multiple dancing figures composed in a pleasing shape with the obligatory vignette and generally innocuous, easy on the eye whimsicality... with the added presence of paintings, I felt it hark back to my old picture Their evening banter. It was part of my demonstration at the workshop, and I enjoyed making it, happy that I caught the theatre costumes in flamboyant flared motion, using one of the most impressive rooms at Weston Park, the dining room. Behind the chandelier is an original Caravaggio!
Special credit to Matt for his logistical influence on the outcomes at this workshop, in particular here for requesting this room to be cleared, setting up the flash with a 'Giant' Profoto parabolic reflector, and also suggesting dancing figures...
