A change of outfit and we were looking for areas in shade that had suitable grungy backgrounds to match the look. A door and a storage tank proved ideal and the concrete floors all around provided great bounce light that really enhanced the images. The beauty of working with even light like this is that once the exposure is set it won't change and so you can shoot a lot of variation and keep communicating with your subject as the technicalities take care of themselves.


By now the sun was directly overhead and scorching hot. Time to warm Jodie up and stand her in the hot, hard light. To be kind I asked her to wear shades to protect her eyes and the outfit minimal so she could top up her tan! It was a grungy looking outfit and so we chose a suitable similar location that was in the most brutal of hot light. I chose a short lens, 18mm to shoot low and extend Jodie's legs even further and also include a little of the sky behind her too. All shot at f5, 1⁄1600s ISO200
