Luiza Lopes from the Royal Swedish Opera joined me for an evening photoshoot in Näsbypark. The weather forecast had been a bit uncertain, so we started indoors, more specifically in my little green room. We did a mix of dance and portrait photos. Around sunset we headed out to Näsaäng for a few photos by the beach, before returning back to the green room. With the last bit of light we experimented with some long exposure photos.
Our plan was to do golden hour photos at Näsaäng, but I had miscalculated, and the last rays of light hit the trees rather than the beach. It meant we missed the beautiful orange light, but we got something more magical, a soft evening light. For this part I had exchanged the 35mm lens for the somewhat larger Nikon 200mm f/2.0, which meant that I was photographing from quite far away, but the upside was really creamy and beautiful bokeh where the background melted away and left only Luiza in focus.
After doing this series of beautiful water photos we headed back to the apartment, to warm up, and do a few more portrait photos, as well as experiment with the long exposure photos.
Many thanks to Luiza for a really fun photoshoot!
