It was such a beautiful day today making me anticipate a glorious sunset so I contacted the team to get Shannon on standby for a location shoot in the last two hours of daylight. I chose a cornfield on the edge of our village for the shoot as there are still plenty of the big round bales to use as a props and at 17:30 we were on site and setting up. Shannon is only 15 but did a great job as model and I’m pleased with the images we got. The idea of a sunset soon disappeared as the sun dropped behind a huge bank of clouds within about 15mins of us starting to shoot! It then clouded up pretty quickly and even felt like it was going to rain! We only did two changes of clothes but it was enough to get us a selection of images and I think we will try again if we get another good autumn evening although I have some ideas for a woodland shoot with stunning autumn colour. I used a 500w monobloc and travelpack to light Shannon on all the shots, initially to fill shadows but then as the key light as the daylight levels rapidly dropped.
