Last weekend I took some time out to go and test not only my new camera Sony A99ii but some HSS off camera flash.
Yvonne and Paul joined me in their vintage wear at Vange Well No 5 in Essex, this is beautiful but somewhat derelict building in the middle of the woods, bu has such a feel and beauty about it that it was crying out for some photo shoot time.
The weather the day before had been a little wet so the steep hill to the well was a little slow going as one foot slip and it would have been mud bath for all of us.
The wind was blowing so the soft box took a bit of a battering, and this is where you realise that an extra pair of hands is a godsend, but unfortunately there was just the three of us on this occasion, so it sand bags and burying the feet of the light stand into the ground for a little more security.
The area is very popular with dog walks and we did draw a little of a crowd throughout the shoot, a lady in high heels and a RAF pilot in a derelict building yes I suppose it did look a little strange.
So after an hour of high winds and some testing here are some of the shoots that I took, enjoy our first but certainly not last vintage shoot. I love this look :O)
Lovely day with the Lewis family celebrating Nan & Grandad’s 60th Wedding Anniversary so beautiful to see the love of two people and their family.
It was an hour of fun and lots of laughter from this family, and it was a great afternoon in the sun. Seeing the oldest to the youngest member of the family together was a priceless picture and getting the great grandchildren to pull a face or two was excellent.
Thanks to the Lewis family for an enjoyable afternoon and Happy Anniversary to Nan and Grandad, a love everlasting and moments that will last this family a lifetime.
This was an unplanned shoot with my daughter me a living room a light in one hand and a camera in the other a hair light really was needed if this had been a client shoot, but I was testing a backdrop but loved the photos
