Rediscovering this contemporary dance Photoshoot feat. Clara René

These files could have stayed on my hard drive forever!

It’s hard to explain, but sometimes, things just don’t work out. The photoshoot itself was great, we had a lot of fun, but strangely when it was time for me to work on the files, I wasn’t feeling it. A picture, in particular, didn’t turn out the way I expected… in other words: I failed.

I started editing a few of them earlier this year,  but It is only recently that I finally found the time and inspiration to finish the series.

This is not the first time, me browsing through my files and rediscovering old photos and seeing things I couldn’t see back then.

So before I let you discover the images, let me tell how it all happened.

It was last winter, Clara René is a model I’ve always wanted to work with, but we just couldn’t find the time and place to meet. She’s an experienced model, dancer, and performer, to make it short I knew she would do an amazing job. She’s basically the type of model I wish I had all the time.

I am really glad it finally happened, I was thrilled, to say the least. She traveled all the way down to the south of France and joined me in the city of Toulouse.

For the occasion, I decided to make this a special session… we needed a special location, and I got the Château de la Reynerie once again.

I needed those 9 months! Time was necessary for me to finalize these shots. I hope it will take me less time in the future.

Let’s go a little bit further with this image, let me show you the different steps that were necessary to make this image. A quick break down of my editing in photoshop:

For those of you who follow my work, we made not one but 2 sessions that day, here is the link to the other images we made together :

I guess I will from time to time go back on past sessions to check if I haven’t missed anything back then. I believe this series was worth it, I am glad I finally finished it.
