I took these photos back in July last year. I had an opportunity to take pictures of my daughter and another young dancer attending the summer school run by Paris Opera Ballet School.
I have added some overlays to some of the photos in Photoshop using other images taken in Paris to add to the dreamy atmosphere.
The school is not in the centre of Paris, so our location was a suburban park. The girls were full of joy because they were living their dream - dancing with Paris Opera Ballet School. It was a beautiful, warm afternoon and the light was pretty. There were joggers and cyclists as well as families with children playing ball and skating. It is always a challenge taking photos in public places as the well-meaning onlookers are always getting in the way of the shots.
The girls didn't have time to do hair and makeup, but that didn't matter. The photos are sweet memories of their summer school.
