Last month, after the hustle and bustle of Christmas, and after all the hot Santa's and colorful elves that I posted, I needed a palate cleanser. I love holiday imagery as you know, but after a holiday, we all need a little tranquillity and something a little more pure. I couldn't think of a more classical shoot than featuring photographer John Falocco's work with model and dancer Bo Pressly.
When I put together that post, (Inspiring to Capture) I decided to leave out this series of shots. In addition to dancers making exceptional models, they also bring something unique to the table. In most cases, artists don't want you to see the work, they want you to enjoy the beauty of the final images. With dancers, this is almost impossible.
The results of Bo's time and work in the studio, pushing both his physical and emotional limits, penetrates through his poses, his movements, and maybe especially through his beautiful but determined, blue eyes. John is an expert at capturing energy, and even with a still pose, he manages to capture the force, will and movements which preceded that one captured moment.
