Coating Models with Powder for Action Dance Shots

As behind-the-scenes videos go, this one is pretty short, but it still offers an interesting look at how photographer Thomas David put together his popular Dust and Dance photo shoot. Obviously there was some post processing involved to go from initial image to final product, but it’s always great to see a talented photographer put a novel idea into action.

    Aesthetically beautiful and powerful images. Great work.

    That reminds me a lot of a picture Lois Greenfield did of Sham Mosher for a series she called “Airborne”

    This is an awesome idea.

    Question: What kind of paint is safe to use on models’ skin?

  • Paul Bryant

    Any idea what the “dust” was? I’m thinking baby powder, or maybe bleached flour…

  • Alu

    @ Paul : The “dust” was flour.
