Some photographers like to be in full control of an image, deciding themselves on the best composition, telling the model the pose and expression they want, through to selecting which images to edit and editing them, I am not one of those photographers.
Many photographers are also intimidated by creative models, while I seek them out, as I like involving the model in every step of the image creation process as I find that makes for better images. While I pay models, I still like the shoots to be joint collaborations.
I was therefore most fortunate to go on a trip to Sardinia with the lovely Rebecca Tun. Not only is she a great model, but also a talented photographer, so I was sure we were going to create some great images.
When we arrive at a location both the model and I look out for potential shots, taking into account the prevailing light. I will then take a few test shots, and we’ll use them to discuss the best composition(s) and also where the model should be placed and the type of poses.
As Becky is a photographer she also selected and edited some of the images herself, so we’ll start with those. The first ones were taken at sunrise at a set of great rock formations we found.
And we also found some great rock formations on the last day as well, and here’s another of Becky’s edits.
I’ve also edited some images from that sunrise location.
We also visited some abandoned locations which made for interesting images. I especially liked the colours in the wall in the first image.
We also came across a hippy camp in an old Roman quarry, where they lived amongst the huge boulders. They allowed us through their kitchen so that Becky could climb up to this cave in the rocks.
Many thanks to Becky for a great time and all the super images we created.
