Nellie de Boer

Photography is my passion. I specialise in still-lifes and theater (dance) photography: photographing extreme stasis and pure dynamic. Stillness and movement. In both cases light is my best friend (… and sometimes my worst enemy). Photographing dance performances, the challenge is to work with little light and a lot of movement and still be able to create a sharp image. The decor is beautiful, the dancers are beautiful, the light is beautiful: it’s up to me to add something.

When shooting still-lifes, light is critical. In order to portray an object with the desired atmosphere, it must be lighted in just the right way. In this my background as a photo stylist is very useful.
