It’s not easy to rely on the weather when you are shooting with natural light. Especially not if you live in Cape Town and you’re working towards a certain look or mood. I usually book my shoots according to the weather predictions. Unfortunately this is not always easy, not of you have a model and a make-up artist that has their own schedules as well. Sometimes I have a shoot booked but the weather does not want to play along. Sometimes I have the weather but no shoots. Usually on such days I try and look for any available model to do a TFCD shoot. This exercise turns out to be more hopeless than praying for a perfect sunset while the Southeastern is pumping. I have already postponed 3 shoots in December because of the wind. Then there are days when you have a shoot booked and for some miraculous reason the sky just turn into an array of colours. Last night I had a shoot booked and the sunset turned out spectacular. Here is some of the images from a shoot with Natasha. I did two seperate shoots with her, but my main aim with the red dress was a moody dark shoot with some colour in the sky. I am happy with the results, I hope Natasha is too. She has not seen the images yet… 😉
See my FB page for more images from this shoot.
