Bad Summer

We've had a really bad summer this year. Lots of rain and overcast. So I tried to shoot some photos in the studio that had a bit of a summery feel to them. The trick is to try and replicate that hard midday summer sunlight. I did so using a bare bulb flash a little to the left of my camera. Here's how it turned out. 

I also did a regular one light beauty shot, just because I love shooting beauty and practicing my lighting and retouching skills. For this one I only used a beautydish.

Thanks to the lovely Serine from Ebeltoft Models.
