More fun with Devon

When the sun shines bright and strong here in the UK it's impossible not to get excited and shoot backlit images. It is for me anyway! It's the look of summer for me, a cliche but a good one. Reflector used to add a little punch from the front.

Devon at the Farm

Haven't had chance to shoot with Devon for sometime now so was great to have a catchup on Saturday. She's our longest serving model and a great friend. Looking forward to touring Ireland and Portugal with her in September.

Biking with Laura

The beauty of getting out of your own studio is finding new and exciting things to play with. When Lee and Diane happened to mention their old Harley that was in the barn this naturally got me interested. Wheeled it out dusted it down and adding two Elinchrom ELB's and of course our model Laura into the mix brought the whole scene alive.

If you'd like #TeamDenton to visit your studio then give us a shout. Lee and Diane did. Thanks to Mark at Percy's Coffee and Curio's and Laura

Percy's in Whitchurch

If ever you're in Whitchurch, Shropshire then make a point of visiting the quirky collection of curios that is Percy's Bar. They also do a great line in drinks too. We had the run of the place on Sunday and had great fun strapping Laura into a vintage Dentist chair, letting the smoke machine burst forth and matching two Elinchrom ELB's to the ambient light.

Can't beat a headshot

Regular readers will know that of all the shots I take, headshots are my favourites. That opportunity to stare deep into your subjects eyes and communicate with them is the start to all my shoots. It's what makes or breaks the session. Do it well and they are in your pocket for the rest of the session as you've established a raport and trust.

Lingerie and a white wall

Some more from Hayley's shoot, this time a lingerie based set. Swapped the hard light for a 7ft umbrella set on a single Elinchrom ELB at the back of the studio.
