… is model with a rainbow! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Well, this wasn’t exactly my first time, but being lucky enough to model with shimmering rainbows draping in the sky behind me has definitely been a rare occurrence. They’re obviously not the most predictable of phenomena (they don’t appear on demand), so it’s a case of crazed euphoria and ‘shoot shoot shoot!!!!!’ when one appears (if you’re like me and get over-excited by rainbows even as an adult – I’m a bit keen on them – the novel I’m writing even has a big theme of colours and rainbows.) And, as anyone who’s tried it will know, even when they grace us with their presence, rainbows aren’t the easiest thing to expose for!
These photos were taken during a very quick shoot with the absolutely brilliant ex-musician Tim Bradshaw, when I last visited his part of the world, in November. I think this might have been our 3rd or 4th shoot. Tim has taken about a million photos of rainbows and often far more successfully/vividly, but I was still absolutely thrilled with these and had a big grin on my face when he sent them through to me the other day.
And the rest were taken playing around with waves and reflections. It’s a terrible job, but someone’s got to do it. The model I’m joined by in a couple of shots is Eva Luna, an American/Peruvian model I shared a room with for a week, who is absolutely wonderful (we spent the evenings putting on face masks while dancing to Beyoncé or doing yoga, etc.).
Thanks for joining today’s meeting of ‘Rainbow & Rock Lovers (Not So) Anonymous’.
