This session was the second time I'd worked by Riverlake, and the familiarity with the terrain paid off. To begin with, I worked with Ingrid lit by the afternoon light on small glacial erratics, generating strongly side-lit images which provide a powerful description of form.
After finishing up with the woodland setting, we ended up wandering down an abandoned rail line, exploring another obsolete rail bridge in hopes of expanding upon the earlier bridge nudes we did in April. Under any other circumstances, working under this kind of trestle would have been impractical, due to the low light levels, but at the particular time of day we were at the bridge, the sun was beginning to set, and the reflection off the water illuminated under the bridge in a soft, indirect manner. As enthusiastic as I was over the lighting and not being at all deterred by the high setting, Ingrid climbed up under the bridge, and modelled within the space as best she could.
