Got to hang out with Spadge & Di (mother of Spadge) today. They are pretty awesome. We ate lots of awesome food & did a couple of shoots in the amazing Withamside House. This shot was seriously challenging to light. The sun was bright despite it being cloudy & everywhere I put a light caused a reflection in the glass, but after tweaking & tweaking & tweaking some more I got it right — although I could have done with a little more light on the face maybe.
