L_ at the Coast (Polly Cove, Nova Scotia)

Digital original
I have a near terminal aversion to working with direct sunlight, but as this session started later in the afternoon, and the sky seemed to promise some respite, L_ and I set out for the coast regardless of the sunshine. Luck was with us, as by the time we reached the coast, the sky was almost toally cloud covered, though the very first set of images, above, had the tail end of the sunlight.

When I'd asked Liz what she wanted to do for her first session, she replied "I'd love to create some images laying over/inbetween big rocks, small pools of water etc" - so she got her wish. We worked with this rock for some time, exploring the possibilities in regards to posing. The side of the rock Liz worked on was never a question, as by this time, the evening sun was starting to break through the low clouds and fog, giving some directional light to provide some definition to Liz's figure.

The last images of the session played off a small water pool; I made two sets of photographs, one close, with ultra wide lenses, and the other above, using a long lens to compress the perspective, and use the pool to provide a partial reflection of L_'s pose.
