Iceland has its famous locations, which are epic and usually very popular. There are great backgrounds everywhere though, but the main problem is usually finding a good posing platform at the right distance from the background, as if you are too close then the background will be too large and imposing.
After a couple of sets near Jökulsárlón, which must have been very tiring for Lulu because of the cold, we then had a long drive to our next night’s accommodation and we stopped at Breiðdalshreppur for a break in the journey.
The view from the lay-by we parked in was beautiful with a deep blue sky and sea, separated by an amazing rock structure whose formation was explained by Randall, who had previously been a geologist.
We clambered down over a rocky edge which got us out of view of the ring road and, even though we were very constrained in where I could shoot from and she could pose, we were able to achieve a very productive set of images.
Lulu does so many great poses per set that I always feel bad that we only use at most a couple of them, she does so many poses as she wants to give me the most choice in selecting the best images to use, which is one of the very many reasons I love working with her.
In this set I kept her within the envelope of the the rocky peninsula in the background by making adjustments to my position as she posed, and she also tried to mirror the shapes of the rocks in the background. These are only 10 edits of nearly 40 poses she did for this set, and I think they are all excellent so thought I would show them all.
And with this one I felt her hands were perfect mimicking the spikes in the rocks in the background, so let them poke above the rocks.
Many thanks to Lulu for producing these super images, as well as all of the other images we have produced in the past 7 years, I can’t wait to see what we produce in the next seven.
