Break a leg.
Well it was actually a badly broken knee which you’ve probably heard me banging on about before now……….sorry ’bout that.
I was absolutely delighted to get back to photography last June as you might imagine after a fairly long hard slog back to fitness. I use the term ‘fitness’ pretty loosely here as I reckon I was at about 70 percent recovery at that point in time.
This image featuring the very lovely Beckii from this particular shoot is one I am very fond of.
It was the culmination of a pretty long period of inactivity and really a feeling of uselessness on my own part………to start making images again felt absolutely fantastic.
Now Beckii nailed this. I love the pose and the attitude.
Lighting is a simple one light in an octabox boomed directly out in front and overhead set up. I love to light female subjects in this way. Sometimes a cross light pattern can be nice (and certainly more dramatic) but I love the flattering shadows that the overhead lighting gives.
Hopefully you like the image.
The knee is at about 90 percent these days (in case you were wondering).
