Last week I saw a short notice-casting put out by Miss LouLou so I contacted her with an offer of a shoot on the Wednesday. The reply came back saying that she preferred to shoot on the Tuesday, so we agreed to do a shoot on the Tuesday afternoon.
Having collected Lou from Swindon station, we headed back to my place and set-up for a shoot in my garden, and the weather was doing the typical British summer and was dull overcast not very warm and to top it all off it was trying to rain, the poor light levels dictated an ISO setting of 400. Fortunately my garden has a covered patio so it is possible to work outside in wet weather without getting a soaking so we started to work on my ideas.
Initially I wanted to do some multiple images that I have been trying out recently and set up two ideas, one with Lou placed in different parts of the garden and another one with Lou walking across the garden starting off clothed and ending nude, the second idea has so far delivered two multiple images and may deliver a couple more.
After doing a few more shots, nudes and portraits, we moved into a neighbours summerhouse that was available for us to use, it was the first time I had used this space and the lighting was really good albeit not very bright and I had to wind up the ISO to 800 to get a reasonable exposure. Despite the available space being limited I did images that I was pleased with though one of them did actually accentuate Lou’s height and made her already long legs look even longer!
All in all a reasonably successful shoot despite the weather, and as it happened the following day the weather was greatly improved and there was even some nice warm sunshine.
