Danai Maltezou is a hugely charismatic aerial performer, which I had the pleasure to meet (and shoot) a few months ago, in the Nefelopetra Aqua live performance. This time we arranged for a more “formal” shooting, where Danai performed a number of highly impressive routines; which I tried to capture in the best way possible.
he Athens Circus Festival is a yearly institution now in its 6th year and counting.
The event is organized by Circus Dayz in association with Technopolis of Athens, an open venue in the heart of the city. The aim of the festival is to produce an event where all circus acts can be showcased, being a home for different international and Greek artists and collectives. For them, this is a chance for ideas and thoughts to be exchanged but, furthermore and most importantly, to showcase their craft to the Athenian public. In the duration of the Festival, workshops, concerts and shows are held, for the pleasure of the discerning audience.
t’s time to wrap-up the beautiful project I shot with the AcrOdance team, and which was introduced in a previous post.
Once again it was a great pleasure working with highly professional, imaginative and motivated people. Rest assured that this is not the last you see from such collaboration.
This is the full gallery for the project, and you can also check the gallery page.
Almost a year ago I did a review of the Fujifilm 35mm f2, and this is what I wrote there:
In fact, as I've written in an older post, Fuji ought to continue this trend with the smaller lenses. The 23mm f/2 is on the cards, it seems. Why not see a 16mm f/2 or even a 56mm f/2 in the road-map? Smaller, WR lenses, that sacrifice a stop of light but not optical or use performance. And if the 56mm f/2 seems an odd choice, consider historical examples, such as Zeiss, which had f/1.4 as well as f/2.8 lenses at 85mm. The slower lens was always better edge to edge, smaller and lighter. Ultra shallow DoF is not the only requirement from a high-end optic.
