Shooting Grunge – Model

After weeks of truly rubbish weather it looked like we were going to have a break on the last day of the year.  We were wrong.

It had been too long since my last location shoot and I was going into withdrawal, so we decided to go ahead anyway.  Luckily for me Helen is a true professional when it comes to arriving on set prepared and going with the flow.  We decided to embrace the windy and wet conditions and go a little wild and real with styling….shooting grunge in Sussex.

Our chosen Hastings location worked great to protect us a bit from the weather, but more importantly (because the end results are what count) to add to the slightly grungy look we wanted.  Helen’s wind whipped up hair looked just right.

The challenge of location shooting is working with what you’ve got to create awesome photographs.  As long as you work the light right, style the model accordingly and shoot appropriately for the location any type of weather looks good.

Love the results!
