My second post today, to catch up on things. I’ve been inspired to do some more shooting. Here are four shots of Melissa, a French girl living in the Netherlands. We met at her home, where I used a few new LED continuous lights to tweak lighting just a bit. Other than that most of it is natural light.
Here is an image I shot at the end of last summer. Today marked the ending of winter here in the Netherlands, where the sun was as nice to the skin today as it was back in autumn last year.
After some reading in the sun in the garden things got pretty chilly, so a nice excuse to go through some images and put one up here.
Although global warming isn’t a good thing, it’s nice to see the sun again; perhaps it will be as good a summer as it was last year.

Last weekend I had another shoot with Maaike, which happens about once a year. We shot at her home, with beautiful soft light from the windows, but also in the woods with some autumnly looks.
This shot was all natural light. I’m beginning to appreciate this type of light; its softness is unparalleled compared to flash. It’s also much easier to play around with various shots while not having to move around your lights. It’s relaxing, or perhaps that’s also Maaike, who is wonderful. I hope you enjoy the image.
