Zumba Dance Class

Zumba Dance Class

ZUMBA! These are actual club members, not actors. There was no hair or makeup, just a group of members who actually take the class since the marketing campaign these images will be used for is all about the members. Having said that, I had to do a lot more directing than usual but it helped everyone feel comfortable. We had to hang everyone from strings to get the shot right, jk.

Setup: AB800 at 1/2 power into softbox (left) for key, AB400 at full power pointed to ceiling (right) for simulated ambient and ABR800 ring flash at 1/2 power on camera for fill. 19mm focal length at f/10 to try and decrease capture of the harsh fluorescent lighting.

Comments welcome! Don’t forget to hit the FAV if you like it.

  1. Nice to see a plan coming together into a great image.
    Is that a squash court? renting a squash court as an impromptu studio space is a good idea thanks!

  2. @deckchairboy: thank you for the comment. It’s actually a racquetball court which works better since Squash has lines along the back wall. Yes, this type of space is quite convenient to have as a backup. The only thing to be cautious of is the harsh fluorescents.
