It’s always fun to shoot with young Miss Buckitt; she’s full of creative ideas & very bendy, which is always a winning combination 🙂 Plus she lives near me in East London so is handy.

The plan for this shoot was to shoot something involving wax, and play around with gels ( I keep my place neutrally coloured so as to match what the model brings, but it’s nice to change things round).

This shot involved melting candles directly onto Charlie’s chin (ouch!) It was her idea, I don’t generally go round inflicting pain on my models.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the gel shots, I lit the room with a pink gel , & used two striplight soft boxes on Charlie, with egg crates over then to control the light spill. The overall effect seems strangely flamingo-like.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And finally, this is George, who helps me set up the lights, & saves the model from having to stand there while I fiddle about trying to get the right effect.
