Leah / Warehouse Part One

Pro Tip: See this shot on my flickr here, you should also add me as a contact there & follow me on twitter even if it’s just to abuse me.

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve done a lit portrait, so I text my friend Leah & arranged something for today. I’ve had this location in mind for a while but hadn’t had the chance to use it. It was a good job I had a torch with me because we couldn’t see a thing in there. We were pretty much shooting in pitch black, it made focusing a challenge but I still got a bunch of nice shots out of the evening. Enjoy these two, I’ve got some more to edit & I’ll post later this week.

Of course I took a bunch of shots, and liked a few but this one and the main image really stood out for me.
