As I am primarily a Wedding and Portrait photographer, some times its fun to get out and try something a little different. I often see some wonderful images in fashion magazines, Vogue, Cosmo and in many other glossy publications. I saw Rachel and knew straight away I wanted to photograph her in a fashion styled shoot.
Today was the day and it was hot and the sun was very strong – rather than heading for shade I wanted to use the harsh light and see what we could come up with, Playdays are fantastic as it enables me to try techniques and ensure that I can deploy them at speed in a low pressure environment so that when it comes to a Wedding I can re-use the technique without having to think about it.
We had a good laugh and Rachel proved a worthy model – she has never modelled before, so again perfect for me as neither have most Brides, Grooms and Families.
My images normally use very cool tones in the processing so again I can try out using more warmth – I am pretty happy with the results !
Massive thanks to Rachel for giving up her Sunday, a great fun girl and I hope we can work together again soon…
