Today’s new photo features Caroline Hearst at the Legion of Honor.
This photo of Caroline was captured at the Legion of Honor, which is one of San Francisco’s Fine Art Museums. We only have access to this courtyard at the Legion during their open hours, so there was people entering and exiting the museum as we did our photoshoot. Which thinking about it, must have been pretty fun for those people. They go to the museum to see Fine Art and end up walking right through a ballet Fine Art photoshoot.
What I love about this photo of Caroline is her port de bras. (which in ballet terms, means her arms) It’s incredibly difficult to achieve this “swan” pose that Caroline is in. (I say swan pose because this pose is from the story ballet “Swan Lake”) It’s really difficult to achieve because the arm placement has to literally look like a swan. You have to get just the right amount of curve, softness, and placement in order to achieve the look, and I think Caroline nailed it in this shot. She looks very elegant, and very swan-esq.
