It has been a while that I wanted to do something with dance. The Tango in particular because it is so beautiful, stylish, passionate and sensual. I found my model Ludwika via Model Mayhem. Here model profile attracted me because of the strong pictures she has in here portfolio and - of course - here interest in dance. Because of the intimacy of the Argentinean tango, Ludwika preferred to do the photo-shoot with here partner Frank (who happens to de studying for his degree in Photography in Amsterdam). A very good choice. They were both lovely to work with and very interesting people.
Initially I wanted to photograph the dance in its movement. We did some trials and decided to go for the static poses (which in the end proved to be a good choice to learn). I've setup a beauty dish behind a large silk (on their left-front) and placed a softbox on the boom on top of them.
