It was that big!

It was that big!, originally uploaded by Christ tell.

I had another shoot with my favorite model Anna, and the session was as explosive with ideas than ever. We have decided to meet again soon to explore some ideas and concept more deeply.
All the shots are taken on location, not in a studio. We were blessed with a raging sun, a very rare occurrence in Manchester.
Our sessions seem to always take the best of the day, until we are exhausted, but we did have so much fun!

George, Portrait of a Musician

I shall praise natural light again...This shot was taken with solely the light from a window. It was a very sunny day, but the light was not direct. I find natural light to get not only the atmosphere, but also and mainly the character out of a person.
I'll have to destroy a myth for you though: This person is not a musician, but a fellow photographer....

Don't skip scouting

In wedding photography, the backgrounds are very important, and it is good to exploit the location as much as possible. In the photo above, I matched the wallpaper in the bride's room with her dress, associating the colours and shapes.
Observing the environment is crucial, whether for light or elements, layouts , objects... Scouting is the best way to make the most of the places available. Don't skip scouting: you'd be unprepared...
