5am on a Misty Morning

5am on a Misty Morning

I left a party at 5am, to find that it was VERY misty and cold outside. Unlike any sane person who would have headed straight to bed, I was feeling inspired about my photography thanks to a new friend, so I went down to the King’s backs to try to get some atmospheric photos.

The show’s producer, herself a dancer, had ideas for the dance imagery to be used in the poster.

The simple set-up allowed small pellets of solid carbon dioxide (dry ice) to come into...
