A Study in ACROS: Elena

Another Sunday, another portrait shoot in Shoreditch. This time I met up with Elena and we spent the next two hours snapping away. For the first time for one of these portrait shoots I did bring a flash to have more control over the light.

I have always liked the view of St Paul’s from the Millennium Bridge so the location was easy. The one thing I knew I wanted was the model to wear a hat, and for my first project I was looking for aRead more
