Last week I did a photoshoot with Classic Lolita Sapphira in Brighton.
The weather was perfect for it! Sunny and hot but with a bit of a breeze. So the images had clear skies and the breeze gave Sapphira's outfit more movement, which was more interesting for the final photographs.
I took nearly 300 pictures during the afternoon and we tried lots of different locations and poses. Sapphira was a brilliant model; I barely needed to tell her what to do or how to stand at all! It was great that things ran so smoothly and we could just wander round, find a shooting site and I could let Sapphira do what she clearly does best!
When I got home, I wasn't too sure about the pictures as I thought the ISO had been too high (My fault: left it high from some late-night shooting and hadn't reset it!) but after looking through them a few times, I think the grain only added to the effect, especially as a Classic Lolita is heavily based on Victorian style - this just added to the old, classic, vintage feel the photographs have taken on!
Here are a few samples of the finished photographs.
