The idea for this shoot was based around comparing the ‘reality’ of the final images that we see in print compared to what is going on at the time of capture. The shoot was organised for an assessment, but on the first frame my excellent model Nemesia pulled this out and surprised me. Although it doesn’t answer the assessment brief as well as some other frames we got later, it is definitely my personal favourite from the set.

Some of the other frames from this shoot are going to be re-worked later into a photomontage, so keep an eye out for that on the blog soon.
