I’ve posted before about the brilliant work of world renowned ballet photographer, Gene Schiavone (remember?). Now the talented and always kind photographer is working on a new series whose setting is, well, not exactly the Mariinksy. I found Huffington Post’s article covering Schiavone’s latest project, shooting (mostly) non-dancers in cemeteries, to be an exceedingly informative read. Gene discusses his secrets to capturing that perfect ballet shot (hint: the music is very important!), and how his work has evolved over time. Check it out and let me know what you think!
