Another shot from a shoot I did last week in Portishead Wood (or is it Forest) in Bristol. This was a very difficult shoot, but it's always lovely when you have a model working with you who is willing to go the extra mile.
So there we are climbing our way up into the woods, it's foggy, damp, wet and extremely cold, I have Helen a little higher than I am, me already lay flat on the floor (yuck and I made the mistake of wearing a whitish top) and then I go, "oh lovely dress, how about you lay on all the muddy dampy leaves and given us a pose?" Well if I was the model I would have gone like "you what???, are you mad? Lie on that with one of my best dresses? Hell NO"..... But thank God I was not the model and she was all game.
I knew the type of look I was trying to achieve when taking the shot, a little bit of PP magic to achieve the final result and presto.
The model skin was quite pale and white, for me this offered me an opportunity to achieve some images I would not normally get with the always superbly tanned models :) Hope you guys like the final result.
