Last week’s attempt at a summery fashion shoot among the poppies was thwarted when we met on the only dull night of the week. Tonight, however, we got the light but the poppies are over! Fortunately I had an idea where there might still be some mayweed that faced west so that we would be able to shoot into the setting sun to get some nice backlighting and flare. Same team on the shoot again but this time we filled Charlotte’s gorgeous auburn hair with flowers. Then we threw her deep into the mayweed, cast off the lens hood to allow a little flare and reduce contrast and then hit her with some fill light from a Bowens 500 monobloc loaded with a sunsoft deep dish. We had to work fast as the light drops quickly and also we had to make sure the pesky hedgerow in the background wasn’t distraction and cutting through her head. All things considered, we did ok and I got some shots I’m pleased with. As the light dropped we switched outfits and changed location to shoot against some gathering clouds and the sunset although, the latter lost against the former :¬\ Still, there was some colour and again we came away with a few images. Here’s a few for now.
