Bharata Natyam Portrait Session with Kavadi ~ Natyanjali in Corona, CA
The Arangetram performance is preceded by a portrait shoot to showcase the costumes and poses for the Arangetri’s portfolio. The photos are used for the program and poster sized pictures, often hung in the lobby during the event.
For this shoot we chose black and white seemless paper and some props on several of the photos.
We had a wonderful time working with Kavadi and the Natyanjali dancers under Malini Krisnamurthi!
