This was the fourth Cambridge Ballerina Project shoot in a week, all queued up waiting for the weather to improve. Zoe was also in this year’s show, and has a twin sister Gabrielle visiting from New Zealand. Both are equally well-trained ballet dancers, so a twin shoot presented great opportunities for symmetric poses.

Kizzie is the new president of the Cambridge University Ballet Club, and while that doesn’t automatically lead to a Cambridge Ballerina Project shoot (Lara, Hanna and Helen have all been on the committee), Kizzie did shine in this year’s show. She’s a student at Robinson College, one which I had not yet photographed for the Project, and it is almost entirely made up of red bricks, making for some very strong photos.
This first photo was taken on my iPhone and processed with Snapseed and Instagram, as the photo of the day for my #366project. It managed to bring out dramatic detail in the sky, as well as being much quicker and easier to create than my usual DSLR – Lightroom workflow. Most of the rest of the photos below were post-post-processed with Instagram, as I’m a big fan of the square format as well as the colour-processing.

I noticed Ana at the barre during a ballet class taken by Glory, and was keen to arrange a shoot with her. Weather and availability conspired against us, so we ended up having to shoot on the day before Ana’s last exam, in windy overcast conditions. Not that you’d notice from Ana’s composure.

I photographed Claire in the very first shoot of the Cambridge Ballerina Project two years ago. After months of cold and rain, the Summer finally reached Cambridge, so it’s fitting that Claire was the first shoot of this summer too.
