Featured Photographer – Stefan Borup

1. Tell us a bit about the image?

I and the dancer Aurora started talking on Facebook about doing some pictures together. We both wanted something that would be stunning now and again in 50 years when people see it. I love the flow, the lines and grace that is in ballet. I had wanted to do a ballet shoot since I started a little over 4 years ago. Aurora was working with the clothes designer Petra Gjørvad and Aurora sent me pictures so we could agree on what clothes we were going to use. And Aurora had already fixed a makeup artist so that was perfect… About the picture… I wanted to create something that was timeless and beautiful.

2. What inspired you to take the shot?

I started photography 4 years ago when I bought my Sony A6000 and ever since then I wanted to take pictures of a ballet dancer

3. What gear did you use for the shot including lighting?

The gear I used was my Sony A7riii and Zeiss 55mm F1.8. For the light, I used a 150 cm octa and a gridded strip box. Both were on godox ad600bm

4. Tell us about the editing process?

In the edit, I extended the background, and then I added texture on the background to give some more depth.

5. How does this piece reflect you as an artist?

The picture shows more of the way I want to take my photography. Meaning as I really want to create pictures that make people feel something.
