Anyway, he pulled out some bits to use as props, and I brought along my good self, lots of floaty scarves and pretty dresses, to deliberately contrast with the background, and some flowers. Nathaniel is very keep on motion capture and I had some fun flinging things about, and I can't wait to show you all the photos. But Nathaniel had to shoot off abroad and has sent me two photos from the shoot to keep me happy, so I thought I would show them off here! I'm posting 'em big, as I think they need to be, to get the full effect.
Here I am, in my very first ever proper Swirl dress (I had a home-made repro one before, and didn't realise that was what it was until I got this one!), waving a chiffon scarf about. Amusingly, this was the first or second take, and we spent a fair while after with me brandishing the scarf to try and better it, but we didn't manage to! Funny how that happens sometimes!
And here I am in my now infamous pinafore dress, surrounded by abandoned pantomime ephemera. I was pretending to be a girl running away with the circus or something, hence the wistful look! I do like to create characters for myself in shoots, it makes for much more interesting expressions.
So those are just two which have whetted my appetite for more! I am delighted with them, something a bit different from the norm, anyway. Do leave me a comment and let me know what you think. :)
Obey my dog!*
