Urban Ballerina Project

I took these shots at the weekend with model Kayleigh Lush around the Embankment area in London. She is a classically trained dancer and these are taken in the style of the Urban Ballerina Project. The aim of the project is to take pictures of ballerina's in urban settings and only black and white photos are allowed as part of the project. It was begun in New York by Dane Shitagi and there is more information here and here

I used techniques learnt during the second module of this course, Elements of Design, using shapes and leading lines. It was excellent being able to use some of London's most famous landmarks as the backdrop to the beautiful ballerina. I had so much fun working on this for the morning and I really hope to do more in the future with different styling.
