Maya, a ballerina who is still in high school, has performed with ballet troupes in the Washington, D.C. area including dancing at the Kennedy Center. This photograph was taken in a studio in Rockville, MD. She is flying thru the air but in a very tight space. I converted this photograph into a black and white. By making it a monochrome image it reduces any of the distractions that may occur if it were in color. Simplifying the image focuses the eye solely on Maya and her movement, muscles and motion through the air.
