Yesterday Homerton College’s orchard was graced by Bea Svistunenko and Robbie Taylor Hunt, smartly dressed and armed with rapiers. We were there to do a fight photo shoot in the sunset, but a cloudy sky meant our epic plans took on a different tone, sometimes sillier, sometimes moodier. Laughs and tears.
It was great fun, and I especially liked the silly photos. It was quite tricky to figure out the best angle for the action shots, so we did lots of repetitions. Ideally you want a fairly clean background to show off their poses and facial expressions. We got a lot of funny faces and hair flying. As it got darker I increased the ISO and the aperture, and you can see in the later shots that the depth of field is narrower. Many thanks to Bea and Robbie for the great evening!
