After shooting a video of the dance performance last December, Hallanmaa dancers requested me to quickly shoot a few still photos.
I only had my video lights with me, but I made them work and this shoot was closer to a school photoshoots than anything I usually do. But I think these types of photoshoots are the ones that truly test my skills as a photographer because I need to know what and how to do them to get good results.
I think all the dancers did great work posing for photos after dancing a few hours straight and I'm mostly happy with the results. Of course, if there was more time I'd had worked on these a lot more, but I only shot a few frames from each model because we were already working on extra time.
Hallanmaa dance video will be seen first at Ascension 2022 - Virtual Dark Fusion Dance Festival and I'll publish it in Samael Creative channels the next day.

"Can I download and share these photos?" - If you're in the picture yes absolutely you can and should! I appreciate it if you can tag @samaelcreative to your posts for the credits, but all Samael Creative event photos are meant to be shared.
"Can I have a print-quality version?" If you are the artist, person in the picture, event organizer, or label then yes it's possible. I do charge a fee based on what the photo is used for and in most cases, a print-quality version requires further editing aka more work. Contact me with further information about the use and I'll be happy to give you an offer.
