ink girl scrapyard shoot with Sophie
I’ve had an idea for an ink girl scrapyard shoot for a while now and having recently found the location, I decided it was time to shoot. I contacted my go to ink girl, Sophie, and asked her if she fancied the shoot and she jumped at the chance for something different for her portfolio. I knew I wanted to shoot on a bright sunny day using the strong spring sunshine as a back light and to use a Profoto B1, gelled with a CTO, as a key light to make the model jump out from the scene and today was perfect. My idea was to have Sophie wearing a vest and wielding a large wrench for an authentic look, but the wrench that Richard, the yard owner, had was very heavy and a struggle for Sophie to lift! What a weed! Worse still, the shoot was in cut off in it’s prime due to Sophie’s hay fever allergy but we got enough shots to know that this is a great location for a shoot and we will be back in the very near future. My favourite backdrop was the rusty old railway goods carriage which had the most wonderful patina and texture.
