Rachel and Warren, Dancers in Flight

I am always on the lookout for inspirational photography, and came across a gallery by New York photog Jordan Matter called Dancers Among Us. Viewing the images is sort of like seeing superheroes doing everyday things around the city, an idea I really liked, and I wondered if it could be adapted for Seattle.

Luckily I know one amazing dancer, Rachel Randall, who you may remember from a couple of my panoramic images!

We decided that Seattle Center would have a high concentration of iconic Seattle landmarks, so on a bright and sunny day, she brought her friend Warren Woo and we ran around shooting them leaping and jumping and dancing. I don’t know that we spent enough time on any one shot to get that perfect floating-in-midair look, but we certainly had a lot of fun. Or at least I did. I was only directing!
