    I will share the rest of the shoot soon. Actually he was doing movements, when I saw the shot I told him to freeze.

    The lighting on the neck. It is covered by the black wig he had. No shadow, it is the part of the wig. Is that what you mean?

    Yes, I agree withthe need for a hair light, and even another light for rim coming from back camera left. But I think the shots are great. Dancers make awesome subjects.
