More Welsh Wetness…

Quite apart from the glorious trip to Skomer a few weeks ago, the other parts of the week away were just as good.  A trip to the red kite feeding station yielded some excellent images – with the birds picking up not only from the bank but from the water too.

They are fast, and it took considerable time to get the birds exactly as I wanted them.  The day being overcast, but without rain did actually help, as the light was good – very bright, but beautifully diffused with the overhead cloud.

Sometimes the rain and the damp of England can be a blessing.

Hopefully more to follow.

Model Portraits and Portfolios

On Sunday this week, we ventured outdoors to complete a portrait shoot with the beautiful Luceh.  The weather was poor, grey and overcast – and which eventually descended into Britain’s most famous weather – drizzle.

We’d gone for the urban look, and on hunting down a backstreet, we came across the most absurd thing.  A toilet (brand new and complete with installation labels) had been discarded in a back alley.  The burning question then was …. “could we ignore it?”  the racing answer came back a a resounding NO !!!

Luceh was a star, and immediately agreed that it had to be used – all the other rubbish was already there, and we didn’t need to try and find extra props… it was all so surreal, and yet so much fun.

On a more serious note – we got some amazing images of her despite the cold grey day.
