Arelle approached me via Facebook after seeing some of my earlier work. We arranged to do a shoot in Wellington and I decided to try out a new location of the gun emplacements at the top of Brooklyn Hill. Anyone who has looked at previous blog posts will know that I like shooting in locations that have a lot of street art. Unfortunately my favourite location has had all of the art painted over with grey paint.
The gum emplacement on Brooklyn are more open to the elements which makes them somewhat risky for a winters day. As it turned out it was a clear blu sky day which in winter produces some quite nice light.
The one disadvantage with the location is that it is a little walk from where you can park a car so by necessarity it meant taking minimal gear. For lighting I took a speed light with a shoot through umbrella and also the new Lume Cube that I had bought. This is a small constant light.
I have to admit that by the time I got up there I realised how unfit I was.
