Floating tutu

Posted by
Charlotte Meryman (Williamsburg, MA, United States) on 16 December 2009 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

A prime example of why I take my camera everywhere: I shot this in the ballet studio where my yoga class is held. I love how the clear hanger disappears in the sunlight. Many thanks to my son for his processing help — at 15, he's way ahead of me!

agree with everything that's been written so far, plus I like how the hanger throws a shadow on the wall that looks like the rough outline of a head...now that's cool...and I agree, a camera, everywhere helps, but you gotta 'see' the shot...i like your blog Charlotte...lots of stuff 'seen' well...good luck with your photographic plans...

Remarkable, artistic capture. I like the shadow, how it shows the hanger yet it is invisible on the actual outfit.

@Barbara: That's my favorite part, too. Thanks for all your comments!
