If you have ever had a goal to lose weight, love hip-hop music and enjoy busting a move on the dance floor then the Down South Bounce workout party hosted by Helix Social was definitely for you. Playing some classic and fresh hip-hop tracks while performing some awesome dance moves was definitely a pleasure to shoot. There was not a dry face in the room as dozens of people broke a serious sweat in this high-intensity workout at the Howard Theater in DC.
Although I was clearly not part of the workout party, I did have to move around quite a bit to get some good shots. In addition, I had to take a couple of short videos as well. I was fortunate as this was one of those shoots where the client allowed me to go anywhere I wanted. Whether I was on the stage behind the instructor or right in front of the workout crew, the room belonged to me and my lens. A full frame camera was definitely crucial in the room. Although the lights were quite disco like, it took special equipment to capture every object and individual in the room.
Lucky for me, people likely did not notice the guy with the camera scouting the room like a ninja as they were trying very hard to keep up with the instructor. Like many of my shoots, this one was a lot of fun. Hope to do a few more of these in the future.
