We bend so we don’t break

I met up with Alexandra Mellin and her friend Isabella Brignoli for a dance inspired photoshoot this past weekend. There is an old concrete water tower in Lill-Jansskogen that we thought might be a nice backdrop for photos, however it turned out to be fenced in, so we headed to Ugglevikskällan instead and did a few photos there before moving indoors to avoid the rain. Most of the indoor shots were done by the window, with a silver reflector to lift the shadows.

We also did a few portraits. Here Isabella Brignoli standing by the window. If you ever wonder what kind of light was used for a portrait, check the catch-lights in the eye. They usually tell you a lot.

Many thanks to Alexandra and Isabella for a fun photoshoot!
