After looking at some portraits today, I felt inspired to trawl back through the archives of some portraits I shot last year.
In September of 2010 I photographed a fantastic young model called Sarah Jane Kelly. The shoot took place at Berrima in the NSW Southern Highlands.
I had photographed Sarah once before, but I wanted a country setting and some beautiful golden hour light. I hit pay-dirt.
I landed some nice images of Sarah on the day, but only processed and published a few of them after the shoot.
Today I started looking at a few of the images, and found some, which after some time and with fresh eyes, stood out and looked worthy of processing and publishing.
Here is one of the images I captured of Sarah, which really shows what a wonderful model she is.
While I had my lighting equipment with me, I decided to make use of the fantastic natural light I had. The sun was low in the sky to the rear right of Sarah, so I had an assistant hold a golden reflector dish to bounce the rich, warm light towards her face.
