┬áVery occasionally I get the chance to shoot an image that has been rattling around in the dark recesses of my brain for ages. In this case I really wanted to take a long-exposure shot of a pole-dancer spinning round a pole while covered in lights that would leave a trail in the air as she moved. The only problems were that I didn’t know any poledancers and I didn’t have access to a pole.

The I met Jade. Not only can she poledance, but she also has a pole.

So we duly wrapped her in electroluminescent wire (battery powered) and she spent a rather energetic hour throwing herself around the pole in the dark. I gave her a very specific pose, and hitting it at the end of her spin was incredibly challenging.

After a few attempts she nailed it perfectly and I got the shot I wanted. It’s good when a plan comes together.

    She was lit with a Duracell flashlight at the end of the exposure.

  2. *and body of the pole one?

  3. Looks great. Did you use a single burst of flash or a flashlight or something at the end of the exposure for her face?
