My Cousin; The Dancer.

Recently I got the chance to shoot my cousin again.
With a camera that is! My favorite model and one of the most naturally beautiful girls I know is also a dancer. I thought it'd be cool to try a very different type of shoot than her last (her prom photos) and incorporate a more raw, low key, grungy kind of style.

Here is what we came up with... 







This is just a quick snippet of what we got, seeing as we we're working for about 3 hours! I also got some super fun family portraits of her and 2 out of 4 of her sisters - I'll show them in another post :P
Also, I want to mention that for some reason (probably our rubbish internet) that the photos are uploading in really bad quality :( I promise they are alot better on my laptop.

One last one for good measure...a new self portrait using the same lighting. What do you guys think of this set up? Like the exposed equipment or not?
