Winter is an odd time in the south. I normally write my posts a few weeks in advance so I have some leeway in case other parts of life get in the way. As I write this in late January we’ve just had a pretty strong snowstorm and bitterly cold winds. The entire month of January was quite cold, but just before each cold snap we’ve had a very nice day or two of warm and pleasant weather. I met Ivy to shoot over in Asheville on one such warm day between cold weather days. I’d been a little worried about making the shoot as I’d suffered a broken pipe thanks to the extreme cold earlier in the week. Thankfully I was able to make repairs to my home and still make the shoot.
While warm, it wasn’t outdoor weather. In the end we wound up working at a hotel in the city which worked nicely. Early in the shoot we worked through some nice glamour styled work. There was an original concept here related to the fairy tales concept I mentioned in my Shoot with Xlcr Moon, but in the end the location didn’t quite work for my thoughts so I worked with just a traditional glamour look.
After those we worked through some art nude work. First we did some work using some paper lanterns as the sole light source. I’ve played with a few times in the past and they have some interesting strengths and weaknesses in lighting. One resulting photo I particularly liked this nice silhouette image of her against the lanterns.
And finally we wrapped with a few more traditional art nudes images.
