The Windy Day
I had the opportunity to shoot with Nadine again a couple of weeks ago. The last time was a freezing cold day in the winter. This time turned out to be very windy. To the point that I struggled to maintain my balance at times and her hair was going everywhere and with brief momentary exceptions could not be controlled unless she turned her face into the wind: think a wind machine on max and no off switch. :)
Those who have posed for me in the past know I can be a bit of a perfectionist with hairs out of place and so on. So the old me wouldn't have even considered shooting this day let alone suggested doing it, and if I did, I would have got frustrated, and at the very least would have done it all in black and white... :) But I enjoyed the challenge and knew Nadine's long hair would be fun to shoot in the natural wind machine.
And as a bonus, I got to save a couple of tiny tiny fish that were flopping about in the shallow water in the above shot. Changing my ways a little saved lives. :)
These and most images from the past 2-3 years on my blog are available as prints.
