This photo was taken for a poster of an upcoming piece of a contemporary ballet dance company. The piece called "Danza" as it is a 3 part event with 3 italian choreographers creations. We wanted to have the visuals kind of renaissance vibe with lots of muscle definitions and a flow kind of movement. This is one of the final 3 plans. I had a strip box overhead with the long side parallel with the camera plane to have harder shadows under the muscles but cover more sideways. Second light is a softbox at camera left, for direction and sideshadows for the body and muscles. Third light is a softbox at camera right in the back for kicklight. The dancer was falling onto a mat.
