Hello everyone. I asked this girl in passing if she wouldn’t mind posing for a photograph, having seen the great potential in her for something very photogenic. Every time I shoot I try to capture the essence of who I see before me. Sometimes it doesn’t come off and something gets lost along the way from camera to print. That’s just the way it goes. The camera can lie, you see. At other times I’m blown away completely with what’s been captured.
Many of you will be getting familiar with this street by now. I’ve used it as a background on a few occasions. This is where Prince William was living while studying here in St Andrews. Side streets like these are a godsend when you want a model to really stand out. The street directly behind me is the main artery for students heading to and from the town centre, like columns of marching ants. So many in number in fact that it can be bewildering for a photographer.
I hope you like these photos as much as I do. Didn’t she do well?
