What a strange year 2020 has turned out to be, and not in a good way. It’s been a year of very few shoots due to the pandemic, but I have managed to do some social distancing locations shoots. These have been bright spots in the year, and one of those bright spots was the yearly shoot with Artemis Fauna. Originally it was supposed to be a studio shoot and studio day for other photographers but at the last minute the studio was sold and all bookings cancelled. Plans were changed and it meant Artemis and I had more time together for a shoot. When the day came it was dark and stormy, but we made the most of it and headed into the forest for some costume themes.
A dark day and a dark forest…..lends to tricky lighting but also some moody looks.
And perhaps a little mythology and mystery – The Summoning Stone
It was a very busy forest lots of dogs and dog walkers, after a bite to eat we headed down to Port Allen reed beds for some art nude.
On the way back we hit some random spots before ending the shoot….
And so ends another adventure…though we did hit the wine shop on the way home, where Artemis had samples of the local wine and chilli jam. It was another fun day with madcaps and unexpectedness, including dog walkers, capes, hairy mouldy poo, puppies, weird eyes, buzzards, dead rabbits, arrows, leather belts, brambles, toadstools, mossy feet, a sacrificial stone, boats, geese, reed beds, mink traps, a stingy arse…or two, and the nettles of surprise.
In other words….the usual!!
