The dancing studio pictures of Katies dance studios photographer Heathers were shot in a dark room in the basement of her home.
“I had never done photography before, so I didn’t know anything about lighting, I just knew it was going to be a different way of doing things,” she said.
“It was a really exciting experience because it was such a new thing for me and it was so quiet.”
We didn’t have any lights on so it was really dark and I just wanted to capture it as well as I could.
“The photographer has been shooting for Katies since December.”
The first few times I took pictures, I was thinking, ‘How is this going to look on a website?'”, she said of the studio environment.”
But when I got into the studio, I thought, ‘This is going to take off and this is going for me.’
“When I started getting more involved in the photos I was able to start to get some really beautiful, very natural images that just kind of felt natural.”
Ms Katies says she has already taken more than 50 photographs, but has only recently started sharing them with other photographers.
“My goal with this project is to create a gallery of images from the studio,” she explained.
“And the images that I’ve created will be accessible to a wide range of people and it’s also going to allow people to get involved in a photography community in their own way.”
When you see images like this you will be able to get a better understanding of what the people at Katies are like, what they do and what their life is like.
“If you are in the Melbourne CBD, it will be a great place to see what they are up to.”
