Documenting a Ballet Class

As a photographer, I thrive on the novel. I love documenting things I’ve never photographed before. So when I was asked to photograph a ballet class, I was excited to see what I could get.

This is The Ballet Studio of Carmel (Indiana) lead by Ashley Thibodeau. It was a fun class to photograph! The big windows on the north side of the studio made for some great, soft light. I chose to edit these in black & white so they had a classic & timeless feel.
