Erica and Venus in a River (Ingramport River, Nova Scotia)

I usually shy away from working in water with direct sunlight, finding the harsh shadows and faster (relatively) shutter speeds frustrating. In this case, the two models were only in the province for two days, so we didn't have the luxury to be selective about the weather.

With this in mind, the above image has to be one of my best working with direct sunlight in a river.

Made at our second location for the day, this was produced well into our time at the river, but was more about the water as a surrounding, than an environment. I was happy to follow Erica’s lead, in regards to how she was working with the space.

Apart from the occasional standing portrait, I seldom make images around water that are not about surface or motion; for this photograph however, Erica was convinced the branch hanging over the water would provide us with an image...and she was right!
