star dancer

By magda_indigo  
THis was for 5 years a solo and star dancer with one of the greatest choreographers of the century, Maurice Bejart. I was fortunate to have him in our studio a couple of times, and what an experience it was, each time. Thanx Christian, for being so patient and sharing my artistic vision. Also thanx Paul for making the awesome prints and spend hours in the darkroom , printing them exactly the way I wanted them(*:*)

Thank you ALL, for the constant encouragment. I'm thrilled to bits, especially since I won with this portrait. I'm sure you'll know what I am saying, but some shots mean more to us than others.
I'm sorry I cannot always reply or even view your photo's or give them the attention they deserve, but I do my best within my busy shedule. Lol (~:*)

The lighting is absolutely superb (I'm taking notes here). He's part marble statue, part flesh and blood - a wonderful combination of effects. What poise and elegance this man has - and you've caught that so well in his face and posture. Fantastic, Magda. I'm so impressed. A thousand clicks! (But only able to mark one up! LOL)

What a great study in B&W, like it very much.
Spent most of my working life in b&W (Darkroom side) I still enjoy seeing good monochrome images.
