Behind the scenes "Dance and Water" by Shed Mojahid ( Part II )

| |


In this second part about "dance and water", from Belgium, photographer and dancer Shed Mojahid explains in this video the behind the scenes about how he used water and a black background to get contrast and capture the feeling of movement, so difficult in dance photography

I wanted a pretty dark atmosphere with the reflection of the water.I like to have nice lines on my photography and play with body movements ( saids Shed )

ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHER:


Ever since I was young, I’ve been testing the waters of the artistic world as a dancer (bboy), being part of a group called « Hoochen » ever since I was 13 years old. Today, another art has joined my artistic interests, the art of photography and videography. In 2006, not one school would have me. I had been absent too many times because of a fully loaded life filled with travel all over the world for work and competitions. Only one school gave me a chance l’Inraci (school for photography in brussels)

This is were my passion for the audiovisual arts was born. Working mostly on the downlow until 2011, I decided to take control and to try to give myself the chance to evolve as much as I could to share my own personal universe with each and everyone of you.

Thanks Shed Mojahid for share all this information.
