Free Skate

In anticipation of the 2018 winter Olympics, the PR team for Disney on Ice wanted to show off the strength and athleticism of their performers who are usually obscured by their elaborate costumes. The client wanted to utilize the vast negative space provided by the ice, and photographer Geo Rittenmyer added his own touches to their concept. He took advantage of the existing high key feel of the ice and created soft backlighting that subtly cast their shadows below and added an extra dimension to the open space. Incorporating fog into the scene enhanced that feeling of depth and instilled the picture with an additional sense of movement.
