Not too long ago I had the opportunity to photograph the soft launch of Distrikt Movement, which is a community studio created to satisfy all your sweaty pursuits from yoga to circuit training and everything in between. The night started from a warm welcome from the Distrikt crew as I took some environmental shots around the studio before the guests started pouring in. Once everyone was settled, they embarked on a cozy yoga class from Distrikt's very own, Alex. I really wanted to get some shots of the class, but at the same time I didn't want to disrupt their zen. Luckily there was a glass door to the studio so I managed to get off a few shots there. After the class everyone enjoyed a warm and welcoming soup and salad from Culver City Salads as the guests mingled amongst each other.
Some of the photos appeared a good bit warmer than my normal work and there is a good reason why! The environment there, lighting included was very warm and for me to go in and correct that would have been unauthentic to the moment itself, so I just decided to leave thing's as I saw it.
I had a great time working with the Distrikt team and hope to be back one day for a class, or even more photos!
