The last big group shoot of the year finds me over in Melton with 1st Class Fitness and the superb Donna Gant.
Working at Donna’s studio has become so much easier with the improved pole assembly that let’s us work in the high central area of the main studio, and in contrast to the last time I shot white backdrops there it gave me more control, allowing me to sharpen up the results a little, ever tweaking the result a little each time. I still haven’t built up an overhead reflector assembly, but it’s getting there slowly. We also had a guest appearance from Kym Moore from PoleHog who was there to get some shots showcasing her awesome custom-made polewear, much of which the other performers on the shoot got to try out and take away!
One potential solution would be to use a low power light in a giant parabolic brolly, something I intend to experiment with on my next test shoot, as I’m still chasing the elusive wrap-light I get from Bliss Poledance…
Although mostly pole, we had to sneak a few hoop shoots in at the end before racing away to get to the Flight Fitness Christmas pole showcase. Good grief what a hectic weekend this one was!
