Getting one last shoot in before Christmas, Lauren invited me over again to shoot with her and her fantastic group of poledance students.
With the clock ticking before the arrival of another child, I was back at Flight for a packed student shoot, again covering aerial hoop, pole and silks.
A new challenge was introduced in the form of Baby Princess Sparklepants – a beautful rescue greyhound who is now the pride and joy of Lauren. Mostly a placid beast, she did find interest in front of the camera on more than one occasion, leading to a couple of hillarious moments!
Although we’re shooting on white again with a familiar setup, it’s undergoing subtle tweaks and revisions not only on set but in the postprocessing approach, and this shoot yeilded some of my cleanest and in my opinion best shots on the setup to date.
The biggest problem with a refinement process like that, is you look back on the the older images from a few years ago and want to reshoot them all, as the improvements are quite startling. I might revisit some of the older shots to see if they can be brought into better shape with my improved post processing workflow, but obviously nothing can be done to update the lighting in old shots.
