I’d been trying to get to shoot with Rachelle for quite a while and dates never seemed to gel.
Eventually, they did, and we spent a happy 4 hours wondering around West Lothian getting soaking wet as the liquid version of sunshine was pouring from the skies.
Undeterred, Rachelle cracked on with it, worked her socks off to give me some great images.
I cant help revisiting this shoot with Chrissy last year.
Every shoot with Chrissy is an enjoyable and productive experience.
There’s still plenty more to give from this shoot, and I’m slowly working my way through it.
This is also the first time I’ve used my old, re-vamped desktop to edit (and the first time I’ve been able to use Silver Efex as it won’t run on my laptop. Must need RAM on then graphics card or something); more than happy with the hardware, jury is out on the software.
As the weather has been so lousy, I’ve re-visited last year’s shot with Darling (can be found here) and chose these images to work on.
October saw another shoot with the totally fantastic Chrissie Red deep in the autumnal depths of Perthshire.
We shot on a hill side
We shot in a wood
Chrissie got a bit wet posing in the river (and at that time of year it would have been cold)
I got some bloody fantastic shots
Darling came up to visit from Manchester.
Ok, lets not over inflate my importance here; Darling, a model from Manchester was on a tour of Scotland, and Simon and I took advantage of this and booked her for a day.
We went to an old house – you’ll have seen the ruins before [Link to Previous Art Nude Set at this location], shot some images and then went off somewhere else for the stable block images.
It was a great day, and I would happily recommend Darling to anyone.
Simon and I worked with the beautiful and talented Roswell Ivory when she was on tour in Scotland.
We started in an old deserted ruin. When I say deserted … if you didn’t include the family that suddenly descended mid-shoot and hung around for at least half an hour … and then the dog walkers …
It’s a miracle we got anything done.
We ended up in Edinburgh for a bit of light painting
