Here are a few shots from a recent meeting with our little friends Isobel & Neve. We were aiming for something different from the studio shots on white backgrounds that are so popular, so we shot these outside, just in their back garden, with good old fashioned natural light.
We had a something of a problem presented to us by what Isobel sheepishly described as her 'chin boo boo'. So how do you shoot a portrait of somebody, when you can only show half of their face? Always up for a challenge, we decided to see how many images we could shoot with said boo boo hidden, and still make them work. We managed a few :)
Absolutely stunning shots for only half a visible face. Neve, however, happily showed off her chin with wild abandon.
... But made a rapid disappearance for the finished print after some sneaky retouching.
We look forward to shooting the girls again one day soon, maybe scar free next time?
