Juliet (Part 1)

We have a new face on these blog pages!

I had been planning the idea for this shoot for a long time, only I had been struggling to find the right model for it. I wanted someone who was very pure (english rose type) and I found her at the Clifton Hill Costume & Textiles Launch Night - The photos of which can be found HERE. We got to talking and I found out that she was actually a big fan of my lovely friend Roz's blog, Clothes, Cameras & Coffee.
Luckily we got some beautiful sunshine for the day and gave me another chance to utilize my new lens! A very successful shoot!

The dress used here was another from my Grandma's wonderful vintage clothing archive! To see other pieces from the collection, look HERE

(This shoot will be spread over two posts, as I just wasn't able to narrow down the shots!)

And we're back.

Finally got around to doing another fashion shoot with Bala Piti, my lovely model from THIS post who incidentally is now featured on the Motel website for her modeling for I Love Crafty. Click HERE to check it out!

So I recently got a lovely new lens for my camera and I'd been desperate to try it out in a shoot. The differences between my new and old lenses was ridiculous. These images required hardly any editing all - just a minuscule amount of brightening! 

We began shooting but the lighting was so bright that it was difficult to see the image results. I found a bit of shade as we changed location an glanced down at the screen. I blinked (What?! Oh my god!) and began pushing the screen to the model saying "Look! Look!"

Well, its safe to say that we where both very pleased with the outcome!
