Kissed by the Winter Sun by Maxoperandi

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

For a long while now I have been trying to find a location for doing some natural light workshops next year. I think I have found it…it is owned by a friend of mind in Northamptonshire and is what we call in the UK a “Country Pile”. I have also found the model that I will be using…Monika.

In this image…even though the light was fading fast and not ideal…I placed my freestanding silver reflector out of shot to the right and to direct the low winter sun back towards Monika.

Taken at ISO 400 1/100 sec at f5.6

Oh and I forgot to mention it has had over 15000 views!
