Last week I had the opportunity to shoot some portraits at the wonderful burlesque event Sugar and Spice at CandyStripe in Leicester. The shoot was completely unplanned, I had meant to take some photographs during the performances but as another photographer was already covering it, I thought I would do something a little bit different. As such, the only lighting equipment that I had in my bag was a single flashgun and a 60 x 60cm softbox. Here are some of the resulting photos:
There were some incredible performances - and I really enjoyed the theatricality of it all; if you fancy a night filled with laughter, booze and a couple of swinging boobs, check out some of the other burlesque events going on around Leicester, the facebook page of Leicester Vixxens is a good place to start!
