Just recently, I have been contributing and engaging on some photography Facebook groups. The lockdowns across the globe have seen a growth in subscriptions to these groups, and I have enjoyed interacting with newbies and salty old snappers alike.

This shot is taken on a sunny day. The model is in the shade of an Orangery. I’m am in the orangery, shooting out.

I’ve lost the plot. It’s been a while since they’ve let me me out. And, even longer since I have shot a single image worth a mention. So I thought I’d go back and look at a shoot with Cody.
The shot above is the final crop. It took me around 2 hours and 30 mins to decide upon the it.
I used every guide that Adobe Photoshop CC2021 avails me, whilst using the crop tool. I used the thirds tool, I used the Golden Spiral tool, I referenced Bert Stern’s “The Last Sitting”, I cropped her back out, and rotated the image to add purpose to the pose. I did the old “rotate the images 180 degrees” and crop trick I learned at art college. I considered the image as a whole, abstracting myself from the image and asking what the story is?… What am I trying to say? “What does the viewer see?” “What do I want the viewer to see?”
In the end I WhatsApped Cody and asked her… She prefers the shot above… so I went with that… If you can’t trust the model to know what looks good what’s the point?
