This photo is from a themed shoot with model Helen Morgan Rogers and Mad Hatter Makeup Artist. It was taken in a wooded area at around midday so I had to get a bit creative with the lighting. Two speedlights and a shoot through umbrella were used to create this shot. Makeup was done on location and we had a few bemused looks as we walked a short distance to a clearing, complete with pumpkins, wands and other witch articals to where the shoot took place. The wood is very popular with plenty of trails and cycle routs and at one point there were some very excited children telling their mum that there was a real witch in the woods!The shoot was great fun and a huge thank you to Helen and Mad Hatter Makeup.
It’s that time of the year again when the ghouls and ghosts are about! This shot is from a Horror/Halloween themed shoot that I did in a local wood. There were a few funny looks from passers buy and some genuine interest in what we were doing. It was great fun working with a couple of models and a makeup artist and by the way the axe is real, but don’t worry, no models, MUA’s or photographers were harmed in the making of this photo! Having a collaboration with a few people is a great way to get some shots, throw ideas around and have a lot of fun. I take my hat off to the models for braving the latex, fake blood and whatever was hiding under those leaves!
