Photographer Bebhinn Spoors’ stunning image of KZN Dance Academy’s Hannah Oberholzer , which formed part of the Academy’s 2015 Calendar, has won numerous awards.
The photographic image titled – Balance – received a Certificate of Merit from the Photographic Society of South Africa (PSSA) at the 2015 KZN Regional Inter-club Competition in the Open Section.
The classic monochrome image has also received 4 PSSA Salon Acceptances recently (Salons are National photographic competitions run by the photographic clubs belonging to the PSSA)
Bebhinn really enjoyed photographing the dancers at their practice session in a beautiful old Church Hall.
She was particularly inspired by their graceful movements and tried to capture this grace and beauty in her images.
The image works well photographically and is what is termed a high key image. The perfect dark form of the ballet dancer contrasts against the simple white background drawing the viewer’s eye directly to the dancer.
