basic photo course field trip, demostrating long shutter speeds (in
this case 30 seconds); this waterfall is one I've been photographing for
a decade during field trips, and it never fails to provide results.
a week or more, I had been watching the weather, hoping to have a warm
enough day to work with a model outdoors in the fall colours. When the
day finally arrived, it came with a price, fog and drizzle. Bianca and I
had tentatively agreed to work together, and while I expected to have
to call it off, her comment was "I surf, what's a little rain". So off
we went to work in the fog, and from time to time, light rain.

Bianca and I arrived at the burned forest, her first question was "what
trees do you want me in", which was ironic, given my ideas were to work
with the colourful ground cover. As it turned out, Bianca meant her
question, and towards the end of the session, she was half-way up a
tree, taking advantage of the dynamic space to pose within.
last image of this session with Bianca (and likely my last outdoor Nude
of 2014) was the best, and the most unexpected; after working on a
series of poses in this tree, Bianca clambered down, and perched herself
at the bottom, waiting for other suggestions; I glanced down, and saw
how the tree bisected her figure, and immediately knew I had to make an
image. A gift from Bianca to me.
