Hey I've just launched a new design for my website & I'm currently working through all the content updating it to the new layout. This post hasn't been checked yet so it might look a little off.

5 — Solitude & Turmoil

Been wanting to shoot my friend Amber for a while, she’s not totally into getting her photo taken but I think I asked so many times that she finally gave in. The weather was kinda crap tonight so we ended up shooting in the attic above Coffee Aroma, it was a pretty cool location but really tight to get my lights in. I ended up with one light extended right out of the window on a light stand that I taped to my tripod to stop it from falling out. I like doing stupid stuff. Check the video, let me know what you think.
