Cam Proust | Backstage Project
We had picked a pretty hot day for our shooting. The shooting with Cam should bring some changes for the concept in several ways: The first two shootings were indoor, directly at the Staatsoper Berlin. But the locations within the Staatsoper were limited for us and shooting outside was a nice alternative. I also decided to use a "faster" but certainly analog camera, my Nikon F4. And last but not least we shot both styles, with Tutu and a summer dress. And for the future I decided to use normal cloth instead of Tutus.
The shooting with Cam was easy and fun. We did not only talk about ballet during the shooting but also about Europe and politics. Cam is from France were just recently had been the elections. WE were both extremely releived that the right wing parties did not make it this time and that the threat for Europe to end as we know it had at least been postponed.
