This is part three of an extensive fashion shoot for Lencarta. The first part of the shoot was done in an open grassy area with a couple of short trees, and can be found here. The second part was on an elevated wooden platform, and may be found here. The final part of the shoot took place in a cluttered area that featured a rather old and run down tractor (apparently not derelict!). We wanted a very different look to the previous two sessions, and the makeup and dress would certainly be more contemporary, adding to the juxtaposition of the tractor etc.
I remember a time when all my brides wanted sunny days, or at the very least, it had to be dry. Now? Well, I seem to predominantly have brides who want stormy looking skies and darker days. They want something different for their album, something memorable. Paula and Craig were no different; the day swung from sunshine in the morning, through stormy skies mid afternoon, until a torrential downpour at the point of the informal portraits.
This is part two of an extensive fashion shoot for Lencarta. The first part of the shoot was done in an open grassy area with a couple of short trees, and can be found here. This second part of the day was shot on an elevated wooden platform, looking over a dense foliage, consisting of nettles, ferns and other items that cause damage. None of these should stop the process of placing lights, even when the ground is at an acute angle and thorny bushes block your access.
This was an unexpected opportunity. It was actually an engagement shoot for a young couple who brought along their dog, rather than leave him at home. I love animals, and I just can’t help making a fuss of any dog brought to the studio. They’re all such characters and full of fun, and this chap was certainly that. How on earth could I not photograph him?
