Twas a bit less blustery next day... same shell, same beach, different model (only her second assignment) but still cold ;-0
love the location and the colours, the wind blowing makes it.
superb, stunning, love it
Absolutely Stunning work, I love it!
You've put the shell to remarkable use, K. Maggie would be delighted. I'm amazed how large it looks here.
I couldn't understand the local objection to this, it is absolutely beautiful. I could have spent so many more hours taking pictures there.. the weather was far from perfect and so many people wanted to take pictures .. couldn't hog it for too long.
thanks for all your comments everyone
Very well set up and composed but, for me, the dress is overexposed which is a real shame.
Is that a tattoo on her wrist?

looks a bit here but doesn't bother me too much, especially after watching Damian Lovegrove lol but the original isnt, I know, its just a bit of faff to take it down and tinker just for epzland.
superb love the composition
Fantastic image. I love the light and the colour that has been picked up in the shell. That has to be the fewest people I've ever seen on the shell.. whenever I get down there it is swamped with little kids!
And I agree about the shell... still wonder what all the fuss was about (its not like it is even on the main part of the beach).
Catapults come in useful Believe me.. people were the biggest problem.. wind, rain, bright sun then dull light all far easier to cope with than people.. early morning or very late afternoon was the only time there were few people about... although a bit of a crowd started to develop on Sunday morning .. apparently lol
Miles and miles of flat coastline and the common reason for people not liking it... it spoils the view! Have they looked up the coast towards Sizewell lately I wonder!
Classic shot mate great model great image,John
the blowy scarf makes it
More great lighting, colours, setting, composition etc excellent work
Love the contrast of metal vs softness & the colouration in this. Cool
Totally agree that the blown highlights on the dress are not an issue.
How did you light the image K?
This is stunning, love everything about it.
Looked at this from another screen yesterday and now I understand where Boyd was coming from, calibrated my monitor last night although dont think it was that successful but I can see where some detail has been lost on the bodice in the uploaded version.
How did I light it... a gift from above
Thanks, I only asked because the image looks like it has a smaller lightsource than the sun, but looking at it again I can see the vignetting used to give that appearance. Works very well and is very Damien Lovegrove.
Lovely colours, well lit and good 'billowing'!
It was cloudy and the sun poked itself out occasionally, the shell reflected the light well.

inspired to do outside portraits because of Damien and a great admirer of his work I was still hoping that this was actually me, rather than Damien though
It is definately you K; I dont think Damien has photographed a woman on that shell just yet, but to be able to imitate some of is style is no bad thing. I'm hoping to pick up some of that flare he has on a course of his next month... cant wait, I love his work.
Fantastic setting for this, don't know if it was your idea but I'm sure you can take the credit! Think you've proved you can do these location shoots.
Yes it was my idea, got loads of others too just waiting to things to be right and people to be right and off I pop.
Quote: Think you've proved you can do these location shoots.
Not yet I havent, one shoot does not nail it as done... this one was difficult in so many ways but there will be other hurdles to jump before I can say that I can do locations.
Fantastic shot and work...
Love it !!!
I have been here. Not that far away. It was winter and bloody freezing and I COUNT NOT get a photo of the shell to save my life. Your are quite beautiful
Excellent work as always
I like all of this series, but this is my favourite one. It has more punch to it.
Ooh I was there the other day, my photo isn't as good as this thought lol
Fabulous idea and execution! Very 'Birth of Venus'.
This is an Absolute corker of an image , Love the use of the sculpture for the background, And the use of light is incredable i suspect its flash if so its perfect , The golden voil is lit beautifully as is the model
