Thanks for all your comments on my last upload very much appreciated.

Had the pleasure to meet up with Darren (dathersmith) for a location shoot in the Winter Gardens in Morecombe. As it was a Victoria building had to do some Victorian fashion.
Darren found the location and sourced the outfits and I sourced the model and some gave some guidance.

This is in the entrance hall, and as lit by two off camera flash units outside the glass doors on each side of the model one on the LHS on the background the other on the rhs on the model.

Model is Fredau H.

Thanks for looking

It was good to meet up at long last Richard, what a great day we had. Fredau is a superb model and really made getting some good images a lot easier, thanks for suggesting her.

This is a great image to start with probably my favourite location of the day, I'll wait a day or so before I upload mine Wink

Hope we can shoot again sometime.
