Dance Prints – Humans Slicing Through Space by Jesus Chapa-Malacara This week I had the pleasure of hanging out with Brookly and Boston-based photographer Jesús Chapa-Malacara. He shared his recent project “Dance Prints – Human Slicing Through Space” which takes the viewer on a visual journey of a dancer’s motion through space. Jesus explained that in order to finance his project and create these amazing images he’s begun a Kickstarter campaign rallying the support of all those who share his vision and love for photography and dance.  Having been a dancer himself, Jesus wanted to explore a new way of looking at dance. The results are short of mind-blowing! Dance Prints – Humans Slicing Through Space by Jesus Chapa-Malacara Here’s our conversation. The final minutes are quite insightful; I’m sure you’ll agree. Enjoy! Video can also be viewed on YouTube channel by Romy Macias. Here’s a sampling of Jesus’ breathtaking images! Jesus not only uses ballet dancers as subjects, but breakdancers and ballroom dancers as well. He hopes to expand to athletes in the near future.

Ballet Photographer Luis Pons Creates a Large Following With Beautiful Images [Video Interview]

Ballet Photographer Luis Pons Creates a Large Following With Beautiful Images [Video Interview]

Ballet Photographer Luis Pons Creates a Large Following With Beautiful Images This is the second time I’ve interviewed Luis Pons. (See first interview here). If the first interview went well, this time it went amazingly well! I found Luis more relaxed and happy to share his successes from the last four months. When we spoke back in September Luis did not have a Facebook fan page yet. I remember a few weeks later he requested friends to help spread his art by sharing and getting a “few” likes. What happened next was short of amazing. He went from a few hundred likes, then five hundred. Soon he was past one thousand and setting 5,000 likes as a goal. Before I knew it he was past 11,000! Since last fall, he’s also had a showing at the 1st Salon Show at Green Point Gallery in Brooklyn. I asked him how he got to show his work with other 99 artists and what was in store for the future for Luis Pons. Ballet Photographer Luis Pons Creates a Large Following With Beautiful Images Here’s what he had to say. Enjoy and make sure to watch ’till the end as Luis opens up more and we get to see what motivates him to capture the breathtaking photos. Video from Romy Macias’ YouTube channel.

Tarzan Dan Freeman’s Out-of-the-Box Photography [Slide Show]

Tarzan Dan Freeman’s Out-of-the-Box Photography [Slide Show]

Tarzan Dan Freeman’s Out-of-the-Box Photography Think outside-the-box, the rosin box that is. Tarzan Dan Fotography, (yes with an “F”, not “Ph”), is synonymous to edgy. He says he first imagines the photograph in his head and later finds the way to execute it. Dan takes ballet photography to a new level of boldness by placing his subjects in unimaginable scenarios. From the athletic ballerina pulling on a jet airplane to the stunning dancer blocking a bright red door in a wide second position.
