Being unemployed means that I have very limited funds available to do photo shoots, the cost of hiring a model and a studio can be quite expensive so when I recently got a refund on my electricity bill and a rebate from the tax man I could put some of that money towards a shoot with S_Olivia at Spitfire Studios near Swindon.
S_Olivia was holding a studio day and I had booked the last few hours available for that day and arrived with plenty of time due to my having to pick up one or two items. While waiting for my time slot I read an article about a squadron I served on in Germany when I was in the Royal Air Force, which might be worthy of a Blog entry some time.
At the appointed time I went into the studio and set up the lighting, while chatting to S_Olivia about what ideas I wanted to pursue for the shoot. We started with a nude set and changed her hair styling a couple of times as well as trying out some more unusual posing ideas.
We later did some shots that involved some of the items of clothing she brought with her and I also introduced a Bowler hat and an unusual Pool Ball handled Swagger Stick in a few of the shots. The final set involved more nudity and a slight change in the lighting set-up.
