Yesterday I met up with Olivia Åhman to do another photo session. This time we had planned to shoot both indoors and outdoors, but we had so many ideas that we ended up photographing in Olivia’s apartment the entire afternoon. It was an overcast day, which gave a very soft light from the window. Occasionally the sun would pop out and give us harder shadows to work with. At one point we wanted more control over the light so we brought out a flash. For a few hours Olivia’s apartment was transformed into a photo studio, and we moved furniture around to make sure we had a clean background for the photos. Here is a selection of my favourite photos from the day.
We then decided to spray some water on the window, to give them a bit of texture. This was an idea we took from the Moon River photo shoot, which is one of my favourites from the Cambridge era.
Later on in the day Olivia’s friend Klara Jorméus joined us for a few spontaneous photos.
Many thanks to Olivia and also her friend Klara for a fun afternoon! If you want to see more photos of Olivia, check out our photo session in Gamla Stan two weeks ago.
