Pilates.

Awhile back I posted this image because for a not-so-limber fella like me, it was amazing to behold.

I went back a couple of weeks ago with an assistant to actually shoot the bendy lady and we got some amazing stuff. The client and model, Sylvia Nofsinger, is a pilates teacher here in Richmond. She’s good. Really good.

What struck me the whole time was that it was hard for me not to just watch. I suppose that’s the hard thing about being a photographer of any stripe, though. It was hard not to just stare. She’s in such great shape and her ability to contort her body into so many interesting shapes is just amazing.

I suppose for fashion photographers the impulse is less pronounced but I wonder how sports shooters and (since we’re being honest) folks who shoot people completely naked-ish can pay attention.

At any rate, hats off to people who can teach pilates and people who can be amazed at the things they photograph but avoid being gawkers.
