Studio Portraiture - Madalyn Knebel - FYT Productions by Christian O'Grady

I, Victoria, have always wanted to photograph a ballerina.  The way they carry themselves with such elegance has always been attractive to me.  Upon meeting Madalyn, I knew of her history with ballet but what I didn't know was that she was still graceful as ever.  Sometimes people change, whether it's due to their environment or just the mere fact that they've moved onto that next step.  This was not the case, I knew I had to photograph Madalyn's soft and sweet nature.  During our shoot together, Christian was flying the Helix around our studio getting behind the scenes footage to help tell the story. 

Studio Projection Art - Cassie Keller - FYT Productions by Christian O'Grady

We had worked with Cassie before but on this shoot Victoria and I decided to have fun experimenting with light from a projector. We like to shoot a model from two points of view at the same time. It gives us an opportunity to get some more dynamic photographs.
