A few weeks back I went off to Herringfleet Hills for the last of my Redhead shoots (for this year anyway). My natural redhead model this time was the lovely Tanya and I was ably assisted by Amy (thank you Amy!). I chose the location purely for the mix of woodland and open ground in close proximity of each other. The slow demise of Fritton Woods means I might be using this place a lot more in the future, so this doubled up as a bit of location swotting, as I tried to find the best areas to photograph in. The first part of the shoot was in the woods before we moved out to the open field area, where I used some tree canopies to create some of my favourite images from the session.
Like most first time models, Tanya seemed a touch shy to begin with, but also like many first time models, it wasn't long before she had settled into the swing of things and actually seemed to enjoy herself. I didn't need to ask if this was the case, as the difference between the first 'warm-up' set of images and the last batch of shots was very noticeable (well, to me anyway!). So onto the photos…

But before we do, a reminder, that if any ladies out there would like a similar shoot, they are available as a Standard Location Portrait Shoot (for details see my Portrait Page)

The first part of the shoot was in the woods, particularly around a huge fallen tree...

..which helped me take shots looking down on Tanya in this image...

and this one where eye contact makes the shot for me.

As the sun was starting to break through the clouds the next two shots were taken under the canopy of a tree...

…where the shade gave me nice even lighting on Tanya's face.

The last shot was at the gated entrance, where I could get Tanya into some natural relaxed poses.
