It's gorgeous!

Did you flag off the strobes to reduce flare at all?

Additional Notes

Back diagonal lighting from two "naked" strobes to bring out the dancer's shape, plus the Orbis thingie for on-axis fill. All three flashes were on manual at 1/4 or 1/2 power.

I wanted to subdue the environment without obliterating it, so hung a black mesh tarp from Harbor Freight Tool across the back wall of the dance studio. There was a heating duct overhead, so all I had to do was stick the tarp to it with some big magnets.

The fabulous Erika appears courtesy of Ballet Nebraska, where she is the artistic director.
