I spent a lovely summer afternoon shooting with Actor Emily O’Connor. Emily has this Byron Bay beach girl kinda vibe going on and really wanted to capture shots that harnessed a sort of transient state and imagining perhaps a folk song soundtrack, with lyrics about an old soul in a young body.
We jumped in the car and headed for this sports arena in Bellfield where I walk my dog each day (he came along to the shoot also) as it had these amazing lines and textures everywhere and all surround by native Australian tree’s.
It did not disapoint and as the light was always changing we balanced out with with some profoto flash gear which worked a treat and created some depth and contrast and made sure she really popped off the background.
It feels like a pastel dreamscape, muted tones and implied movement as you drift in and out of your body.
