Beautiful light, beautiful model, what more could you ask for? The above shot is all natural light coming from the window. I directed Lorca to move her face until the light was just falling on the right side of her face and the light was catching her eyes. I was hand holding my camera (Canon 5D II) with a 100mm f2.8L macro lens. I really loved the light coming through this window...and the ivy growing through the broken glass. My husband thinks she looks like she's in a Mexican jail cell.
Next I set up some off camera flashguns and tried to capture Lorca dancing.
As many of you know, I also do a couple of radio shows on our local community radio. I do the SWAN Show which is Stroud Women At Noon, weekly on Wednesdays...at Noon. :-) And I also do Beyond the Lens, photography on the radio. I know, I'm nuts, but it's fun. This is a monthly show, first Tuesday of the month. I'm not a great radio presenter as I'm still learning, but it's fun learning and I hope you enjoy tuning in.
I particularly enjoyed doing this months Beyond the Lens show as I received a special invite to go to London for the launch of Olympus's new compact system camera and I got to interview Damian McGillicuddy for the show. You can still catch that on Listen Again on StroudFM by following the link I just made. :-)
If you have an idea for an upcoming radio show of either Beyond the Lens or SWANS, please let me know. I'd love to hare from you! x
