I've wanted to visit Salford Quays for a long time now and last weekend we were planning a trip to the Trafford Centre so I decided to try to fit in a bit of a test shoot at the Quays with a view to planning a 'proper' shoot at a later date. Bella kindly volunteered to model for me but as I'd never been there before it was all a bit spontaneous. We had a great shoot and all credit to Bella for braving the cold as believe me it was bitter out there!

What I hadn't counted on either was the Britain's Got Talent auditions going on at the time so there were hundreds of people around, getting in the shots and even a gang of young girls convinced we were staging Britain's Next Top Model Grin

We came away with some great images but I'll definitely be returning with more of a plan!

Thanks for looking and I'd appreciate your comments.

Darren.

Certainly a different take on the Salford Quays we're used to on EPZ. It works for me. Strong bold contrast and vibrant contrasting colours between Bella's red dress and the strong blues of the night sky and surrounding buildings.

More challenges than problems Martin Wink

Mike, behind Bella just around the corner there were about half a dozen 'togs all fighting to get their tripods in exactly the same place to capture the 'usual' image from here, made me smile.

Cheers Richard. It was bitterly cold, don't know how Bella put up with it. The place has a lot of potential though and I'll be planning a return visit sometime soon.

A very original shot, although the colours are a little strong for my liking, just personal taste.

Salford Quays is an amazing location and well worth returning for another shoot, it has so many possibilities especially if there is a decent sunset and the water is still.
