Freya at the Farm Photoshoot
Freya and I snuck in a couple of hours shooting at an abandoned farm. The place is all about the spaces and the textures - so the backgrounds are always working as a foil to Freya.
This image is an interesting case of creating balance by different tonalities in an overall un-balanced composition. Freya's posing here is spot on - just lifting her bum off the wall to make sure it is not all squashed to a pear shape.
Strong, dramatic posing against some lovely wonky brick work.
Here you can get a sense of how abandoned the place is. Mind you - I've got weeds like that in my garden :)
Here I wanted to use the natural light to skim across Freya creating a near silhouette.
A quick improvised floating shot. I had no tripod so this was done hand-held. These types of shots really need an assistant as well to pull them off properly.
The light coming in from the side through a narrow gap creates really strong patterns in the brick work and I figured a distinctive pose was required to go with the brick work.
Using the natural lines to create lead-ins to Freya.
