I couple of months ago I was lucky enough to shoot with the beautiful Maz. She had a couple of outfits that we were looking to shoot and being summer we thought that a location shoot would be great. Well as usual it rained, a lot. We proceeded with the make up with the hope that the rain would clear away, at least enough to shoot something. We got a lucky break in the weather so rushed down to Heaton Park to shoot at the victorian pavilion. Maz had brought with her a Vivian Westwood dress which really complimented the location.
We headed back to base as the weather turned again, so we changed the make up, outfit and location. Another break in the rain saw us out in the back streets of Heaton.
One last change of costume and Make up and we were out again. The other item that Maz had brought was this very colourful designer jacket. Viki, our make up artist did a wonderful job creating a different look.
My favourite image of the day came from the first section of the shoot. I really love fashion images that are set in cafes and luckily for us there is an Italian restaurant (Sambucas). We asked permission to use their outside tables. I wanted to create the feeling of the afternoon/evening sun so I put a full cut of CTO (colour temp orange) onto a single speedlite off to camera right. I blended it with the ambient to give the appearance that the sun was setting over her shoulder.
