49 — Miss Scarlet
Her scarlet lips have talked me into worse things…
We are very lucky to have access to some absolutely stunning locations. However, we couldn’t think of anywhere quite right to shoot Spadge’s new dress that her mum kindly bought her for New Year’s Eve.
I love shooting on location but finding the right one can make all the difference, especially when it involves finding one with enough room to shoot. Spadge had the idea of us grabbing a hotel or B&B for the night to capture a different atmosphere. Awesome plan, but now we have to find one in not only the right style but with big enough rooms for a couple of Westcott Apollos.
“Challenge accepted” she said with a smile. She must have gone though at least 50 before returning with a great handful of options. One of which was in a cute little town, less than an hour away. SOLD!
A night of photos, fish & chips on the foreshore, a stunning sunset & then more photos went down a treat. And with the large Edwardian House to ourselves, we were given complete freedom with which rooms to use. Heaven.
I’ve been playing with some new skin processing recently, that focuses on evening tone rather than texture, & these are the first shots to make it out into the real world. I’m really happy with how it looks, especially on the studio style shot right at the bottom… enjoy.

Okay, it’s not quite as sexy as last weeks, but it’s not bad.
