I’m sat in the business centre of a Prague hotel at the moment, where I’m staying for the week for a work conference. Since I had a bit of coding downtime I decided that I’d better finish editing and uploading the last of my shoots from the London road trip, which was only a couple of weeks back but which feels like it was forever-and-a-day ago.
I’ve known Kat and Evan for three years or so; we met (and they met each other) at the Canonical AllHands conference in November 2007. They’re a beautiful, fun couple, and I enjoyed shooting them immensely.
As we were moving from one pose to another, I spotted the sun as it disappeared behind the trees in Battersea park. Since I’d already made a thing of sun flare in my previous shoot. I thought I’d give it a shot here, too. Got this first (once again, I don’t complain when the muses are on my side):
Threw up a shoot through umbrella and an SB-900, 1/4 power, and kept the ISO up to keep all the levels balanced (I could have dropped it down, probably, but I didn’t worry too much about the noise).
I had a brilliant time with two brilliant subjects. I wish we’d had more time, and I can’t wait to do it again. I’ve put a few more of the images up on Flickr.
