Dance shoot

I was asked to do a fashion shoot as part of Bijal Chauhan’s degree project. Fashion Management student, Bijal, was working on a marketing event for the local clothes store YSM and needed a series of photos for flyer/poster material to promote her event.

We did the shoot at S9Studio in Attercliffe and a mixture of block coloured t-shirts, caps, joggers and jeans were used to capture the street style aesthetic. Two dancers, Chris Brayford and Sam Underwood (aka Cpt Santi) were chosen for the project and it was my first time at this kind of photographer. Had great fun photographing their various moves.

I’m seen here getting down to floor level for better perspective of the dance moves of Sam Underwood

African Drumming

An off the spur …”must try new things” moment, sent me in the direction of African Drumming…and a beginners class run by Steve Rivers of Unbeatable Energy

The class runs in an upstairs room of an old building owned by the Sheffield Transport Club. Several djembe drums are cased and ready for those without their own to grab and uncase.
We start with a warm up session involving rubbing hands over the drum skin to warm hands and drum. Then several stretches for the hands and arms.
Then we begin. First a quick instruction on how to hit/tap the drum using the flat hand for centre boom, and more of the finger tips for the edge sounds. Then we begin a basic rhythm with Steve overlaying a more detailed pattern. It’s an easy pattern to pick up and soon we’re moving into more advanced sequences…and the more experienced students take on different patterns. So a full sound begins to emerge and I, on my first ever session, am fully engrossed in a series of beats. Great fun. We learned how to do loud clapping and then applied this pattern to drumming. The session was soon over and I came away exhilarated, and with slightly sore hands.
I’m looking forward to my next session.
