On the 28th December I was asked to do a promo portrait shoot for Georgina who resides in Hanover. Luckily we had a dry sunny day and we choose to go out late afternoon to catch the soft early evening light. We used the contrasting wintery colours of the streets that run off the Dock Road to be our backdrop and one soft box to add in subtle light.
Its great to be out on location even in the chilly months ( for a brief time 🙂 ) and I think the winter brings, its muted colour tones with it, which is great for portrait photography as the colours are not overpowering. For Models or actors wanting to add to their portfolio, this is a great time to do this, as its often quiet outside and stark winter palette lends itself so well.
