Early Sunday morning I had the opportunity to photograph the musicians and dancers of a Gamelan Indonesian dance group.
I shot portraits using natural light and a wide aperture against green vegetation.
I also used the felt black background and a single strobe setup from the karate masters series to create a second set of images.
Here’s a quick behind the scenes shot showing the black Lastolite background leaning against our car, and a Profoto B1 strobe with OCF beauty dish on the stand. Portraits were shot using the Pentax 645Z with the 90mm and 55m lenses.
A huge thank you to the Gamelan dancers and musicians, and to Michael Lyon for setting up the shoot. Looking forward to seeing your performances in the future.
