The Performer

I've been excited to shoot with Babette for some time, and today it finally came to pass.  And I couldn't be more thrilled with this shot -- I love it.  Babette is a circus performer, and I just knew we'd be able to come up with some cool shots.  She brought some great attire, a super limber body, and a fantastic attitude.  It was an overcast day, but I was still holding the exposures to 8 seconds, for fear of losing too much visual impact to movement, and extending the development times to nearly double normal.  I don't like to do that, but as you can see here the resultant images didn't suffer too much for it.  Not much more to say, other than I can't wait to shoot with Babette again -- she's a bundle of photographic possibility!
