In mid-September I drove down to west Wales to meet up with a model I’ve wanted to work with for some time, and it turned out to be well worth the long day.

We travelled up into the hills around Llyn Brianne – first by a small lake, then to a derelict building.
The conditions were fantastic – it was overcast, giving some nice soft light, and some of the colours were starting to become autumnal. And Leaf was fantastic to work with.

Some of the images look more autumnal than others – these were edited in Lightroom using a “teal and orange” preset/LUT. It’s false colour, but my goodness it’s produced some great looking images.

She’s a photographer as well, which helps someone still relatively inexperienced at working with models, like me.
I also helped out with a project of hers – a series of nude portraits of photographers – which was an interesting experience. I won’t be posting those photos.
