Hot Weekend

This past weekend I was invited to photograph the advanced class at Bikram Yoga Portsmouth. Having never attended a Bikram Yoga class before (or any yoga class for that matter), I didn't know quite what to expect. I was given a well needed warning that it would be hot, but that would be an understatement. The air in the studio was thick enough to cut, and the humidity began condensating on my gear immediately. Fortunately, with ample set up time, the fog was clearing off the lenses just as they began their warm up. Being treated like a member of their class, it was easy to blend in and start getting my shots. It was quite an experience to witness these athletes practice their craft, and under the conditions of extreme heat and humidity, was humbling. Only years of training and experience can prepare you for a class like this, and I'm glad I was invited to share my craft with them.
