So recently on Instagram I made pledge to eat more pizza and do more shoots. Well “Pizza Mondays” are now a thing in our household…

While eating pizza and discussing Avengers — Age of Ultron with Spadgerina we noted how similar her hair was to Natasha Romanoff’s — we also realised that she still had a black catsuit from a previous shoot. The stars were aligning.

“There’s a smoke machine in the other room if you want to use it?” Erm… yes! Yes I do want to use it! I want to take a photo in the dark! With lights & candles & drama & aweomeness. So we made this.



Shooting in extremely bright midday sunlight is always a challenge, harsh shadows & ever-changing lighting don’t help the situation. It’s even more ambitious when you want to balance/fight the sun by adding a flash or three. I wanted to get a super bright, almost dreamy, backdrop so I wanted to shoot from a shaded area with a few trees for framing & then use strobes to even that out with the rest of the scene.
