Remember Brad Trent, the photographer who did funny portraits of John Cleese? Well, he’s back from a new shoot. This time with Misty Copeland, the only African American soloist dancing with the American Ballet Theatre.

In Brad Trent’s blog post we join him behind the stages of this shoot with the prestigious dancer. As with many shoots, Brad had limited amount of time and they were doing both cover, opening shots, portraits and a bunch of other cool stuff.

To do so, Brad used a couple of fast and powerful Profoto Pro 8-a along with some light shaping tools to get the look he wanted.

He performed pretty well, we must say. Great work, Brad!
