While the last blog post was about fitting Lulu into the environment sometimes instead of being about interaction Lulu is framed by elements of the environment.
The door in this image adds a bit of mystery to Lulu’s enigmatic expression.
Here she is not only framed by a doorway but also is standing inside a doorway, which with the wall gives three layers of framing.
Here Lulu is at the top of some steps, so I needed to stand on a chair to be at the same level so that I wasn’t looking up at her with the risk of her feet being cut off.
Now this is a real lift, in a working building, but fortunately a good friend was standing out of frame on the right ready to press the button and keep the doors open in case they started closing!
Nature provides lots of framing opportunities, as is this case in a dried riverbed.
Here’s Lulu doing a great pose and looking gorge-ous :D
As the light was coming from the top the pose needed her to be looking up.
This sandstone structure provided a natural frame, and as it was early in the morning and the background didn’t yet have light on it making her stand out even more.
And finally, here Lulu is framed in the room of an old castle and further framed by the light coming through the window.
This blog post brings back fond memories during these strange times of the great variety of locations where I’ve been fortunate to work with Lulu. Many thanks to Lulu for all her hard work on our shoots, and for all her support during the lockdown. Let’s hope that normal service will be resumed in 2021. Take care and stay safe everybody.
