En Pointe

Canon AE1 50mm f2.8 lens. Fujichrome.

In ballet, dancers moving gracefully on the tips of their toes are en pointe.

Transparency film is very unforgiving but this scanned beautifully without me needing to tinker in Photoshop. Not bad for a slide thats over 35 years old! It’s sobering to think this lass will be in her fifties now too.

1982/3, shot in a studio where I helped out by sweeping floors, lugging light stands etc whilst the Boss had paying customers in (usually camera clubs). I got to spend ten minutes with one of the models afterwards in lieu of pay!!
