The best way to develop your photography is to constantly try new things, even the most daunting and uncomfortable ones. I personally did not like motion, but I absolutely loved dancers – which is rather ironic. After having captured a couple ballerinas while in Ningbo, I started to feel comfortable with working with moving subjects. And then, while attending one of the RAW Artists show, I met a group of ladies who’s performance left me in awe. One of them who agreed to let me photograph her was Adriana.
