Yoga with Leiah Luz at Dharma Yoga

Posted on 5th February 2016 in lifestyle

Leiah Luz and I have worked together a bunch of times now (prev posts), and every single time it’s pure magic. I’m sure I’ve said this before, and I hope to say it again.

Leiah is a pole dance and fitness instructor. I’ve been watching her social media feeds and seeing some of the little videos and photos she’s been posting that are blowing my mind. She can bend herself into asanas that I’ve not ever really witnessed anybody do. She’s also training in the circus and teaching what she’s dubbed Cirque Fit, usually at Dharma Movement Company in Vancouver.

Understanding that I’m consciously trying to focus on lifestyle photographs by capturing people in their element doing what they love and know best, this was a perfect opportunity for me. Reflecting on these photographs it’s really hard for me not to be excited about this direction in my photography.

Everything was shot in natural lighting, with an m42 adapter on my Sony a7 camera for my 58mm Helios 44-2 lens (which made it all a little bit dreamy).
