'Mother/child' and 'Partner' yoga - the theme of my latest session.
To get a context please come back to the previous article where all about Chroi Yoga/Christina Breen (my client) and Olive Tree Studio has been already said. Please click HERE.
This session as the first one was very well prepared in advance by myself and Christina. We met a few times to discus in details how everything should looks like. All this project is my first experience with yoga photography so it was important to know what exactly I should focus on while working on such a specific and very challenging assignment.
Especially in my case - completely non-yogic person.
What was important for Christina is my style of photography, her vision and belief that these two worlds /my B&W play of lights, shadows and forms and Christina's bright, mindful way to attain a state of permanent peace/ will work together perfectly.
...And she was right. It works really well!
I created a series of photographs which shows many significant aspects of yoga represented by Christina as a professional yoga teacher.
We spent some time also after both session talking about every single photograph I edited out from all bunch of processed negatives. That was another interesting experience as we were looking at it from completely different perspectives having in mind mentioned two worlds /our private worlds/.
There was a few photographs we had opposite opinion about but our conversation created a really good way to understand each others point of view and find a 'way in the middle'.
...Also as before, presented photographs are just a samples. All series you will be able to see in-between other photographs on ChroiYoga new website soon.
