Happy Valentine’s Day!
I just couldn’t pass up this sweet photo for today’s feature. Perhaps many of us out there remember the magic of our first performance experience. I love that this young dancer’s recital moment is captured from the wings.
About the Photographer: Hannah has been featured on Dance Advantage before with a photo entitled Eiffel Tower. You might be surprised to learn that she is 15 years old and that this high school sophomore discovered photography only last year. She says that some of her friends were into it and she, “like any teenager had to follow the trend.” However, if you look at the work Hannah has displayed on her flickr photostream, I think you will see that there is a creativity and sophistication to her work that sets her apart. She shows real talent and promise, in my humble opinion. Though Hannah began just for fun, photography has since become very important to her. “I love it. It helps me express what I’m feeling and is an easy way to sort my thoughts out. I’d encourage anyone to become involved in photography! It’s so fun!”
I welcome and encourage other dancers and amateur photographers to pick up a camera. Submit your work to the Dance Advantage Sunday Snapshot pool. I’d love to feature you here on the blog!
