Though I knew the focus of the session was to be on dance, I began as I usually do with a set of portraits; it would turn out to be the only infrared work I did during the session.
This was my second time working with L_ dancing (the first was in 2005), though it was the first time the session that I worked with L_ dancing nude,. I actually hadn't thought of the possibilities inherent with dancing nude and it was only when L_ showed me several silk veils she had with her that I decided we'd start with nudes.
In the end, it turned out that one move in particular, spinning with the veil thrust out, worked the best and for about half of the time we worked with her dancing nude, L_ was spinning in place! Not an easy feat.
