Fitness Photos

May 1st, 2013

If you’ve browsed through Migrate Photos, you probably noticed that there weren’t many “people” pictures… Since I have a predilection for macro photography, I usually choose objects, flowers and insects as my subjects. I turned down quite a few requests from people wanting me to take family portraits because I just don’t feel comfortable with that kind of photography. I would end up with slanted close ups of hands, eyes and noses… and I don’t know if people would appreciate my perspective since most of them are very traditional when it comes to family pictures.

When my friend Sonia asked me to take fitness photos of her, I warned her: “I usually don’t photograph people, this is not my thing… and fitness photography is an art in itself that I know nothing about…”, but we decided to do it anyway. Just the two of us and a few pieces of equipment. No make up, no professional lighting, very basic.

Sonia’s body is a piece of art in itself, like a sculpture carefully defined, her muscles create lines and shapes that really inspired me. Here’s a little glimpse at the result.

    What a great experience. Geraldine really pulled it off with the most precarious lighting ever. We both randomly decided to snap a couple of pictures for fun.
    End result is fantastic. It looks like we had it well prepared. The shots aren’t rough looking at all. Geraldine’s sense of perspective add depth to the pictures.
    She has a different eye and can capture other than just the surface of her projects.
    Awesome job Geraldine! You nailed it! I am looking forward to shooting with you again!
