First time I'd met Trish yesterday, so I took her up to the coldest place I know - ovenden moor!

the road is now accessible, but you can see the drifts

This is a 17mm shot cropped in a letterbox - lovely sunlight on her face and a bit of fill on the RHS from a 550EX

Managed about 30 minutes before her eyes were watering too much to see and feet too numb to feel!

Any models wanting a shoot? Wink

yeah - she likes the shots and my "chilled" approach to photography...

in both respects of the word as I'm pretty relaxed on these shoots, first shoot, no agenda, just go out and see what happens Smile

Like it a lot. One tiny detail, I would have liked to see the closest turbine with all of the little ones to the right.

This is excellent! I really like the light. Superbly balanced and very well shot. She doesn't look cold, so clearly she is good at what she does.... Wink Superb shot!

Nice one Mr wilson!

Nice to see the actual finshed shot seeing as though i was there quite conincidentaly to witness the shoot, and i can verify just how cold it was up there yesterday.

Hope the poor girl's thawed out, you cruel man Wink

I wouldn't bother arm wrestling with this lass Ade, you might be embarrased.

Nice image like the pov and your own lighting.

and it would have been chilled up there Ade. Just wondered if the shot would have benifited from her looking towards the turbines, just a thought

maybe - but wanted the sun on her face Les.

Factors were not in our favour here really -

first off it was bloody freezing
second, there was snow and ice, it was slippy
third - she had 5 ot 6 inch heels on and couldn't really walk well on the snow, so cou can't get her moving around much
fourth - the sun was bright so the lights were fighting a loosing battle with it 1/2 the time

So you've got to get her into a position with the coat on, then run around setting up lights. then move the lights cause they're in shot _( then when you've got something, you need to get her coat, put it on a bollard then shoot as many shots off as you can till you see her shivering through the lens !

We'll go back up there again in the summer when it's a bit warmer, reduce all those issues loads then Wink

I love everything about this; the composition, dof, the model's stance, the choice of model, choice of crop, colours...

wow!
