Reflecting the Sun was a shoot, which myself and my assistant at the time, Michael Livesey, decided to do to test our skill and kit without the use of flash. Well except for the last 10, or so shots. The reason for the shoot was not only for the above reason, but also to train up Mike to ultimately become a professional photographer. Mikey was already doing most of my editing at the time. This shoot occurred on the 10th July 2011, who would have thought that just 20 days later Michael Livesey would have been knocked over by a car, tragically taking his life. This shoot is dedicated to him. Mikey, you will always inspire when I'm feeling dry, and make me laugh when I am feeling down. Thank you for playing such a huge role in getting my photography to where it is today.
It's often way more simple to just do the pose, instead trying to explain to the model in words. The only problem is that you end up looking like a nana ha ha. This sneaky shot was taken by Mikey.

We utilized and manipulated the natural light provided, by strategically angling Emily and bouncing light off two reflector boards in some shots. The second reflector was manned by Callen. A big thanks to Mikey, Em and Callen!
