My first Evolve group decided to get together for a reunion in middle England to have some fun and a creative shoot session. After a few drinks and a curry the night before it was to the canals of Birmingham that we went with our cameras and a willing model to hand.
A couple of Speedlights on stands made easy work of Cassie beside the Sea Life Centre.
It was out with the Honl filters next for this frame taken just a few meters from the first shot.
On camera flash and a stainless steel lift was a perfect combination for a few shots of Cassie.
The same lift but a shift of white balance to 3800K gave this shot an ice cool look.

A fitting lunch for an urban portrait shoot. - Urban Pie and mash.
Here's a monochrome frame from the shoot. I was working with my Nikon D700 on this shoot.
And here are the Evolve 1 team. A 5 min walk away or just a 30 second swim.
This doorway had a very strong pee pong. I blame the 'sons'. On camera flash zoomed to 50mm with my lens on 24mm was all I needed to create a simple vignette with light.
The last shot of the day had Cassie in need of a leg up. There was no shortage of volunteers. She was lit with 2 Speedlights attached to Arri stands with Lovegrove Flash Brackets.
It was a great to get out and about with friends on this creative shoot. The day after I was at Hampton Manor with Chris Hanley for a memorable Cherish The Dress workshop. I’ll blog our pictures very soon. Please feel free to comment on the shots.
