Firstly, to anyone who may read or stumble across this blog – I wish you a happy new year. I’m not much of a big one for believing in a new year being a clean slate … I’m far more of a take each day as it comes kind of person. Today followed yesterday, tomorrow follows today. Nevertheless, I hope that 2019 brings you all that you may hope for – there’s certainly things I dream of.
Following on from my last post, here’s the second half of that awesome beach shoot in Exmouth from the summer of 2016.
Camy is one of the very best models I’ve ever worked with. Truthfully, I was a little intimidated to meet her knowing the high quality of her work and the level of photographers she regularly collaborated with. I shouldn’t have been nervous though – she was warm, kind, welcoming and hilarious company.
The way things worked out, I seemed to be very fortunate to probably spend more time shooting with Camy than the other guys and I tried to make the most of every minute she gave me. This included shooting in caves she’d found, rolling around in the sand and nearly swimming out to rocks (probably wise I chickened out of it!).
For my own reference, it’s worth noting that this the first time I ever tried using frequency seperation as a processing technique. Since then I’ve pretty much used it on every portrait shoot since (although shot in 2016, I didn’t get around to editing until January 2018!).
There’s a lot of photos in this post, I know – but I could have shared even more!
Camy is pretty special – I really hope I can work with her again one day.
