I'm going to be away in Oxford all weekend, so I may upload more than one set today in an effort to get up to speed.
The following set is from a shoot with Mike Crawley in the bluebell woods near Watford. We managed to catch the woodland while the bluebells were at their best. We were also incredibly fortunate to discover a ready constructed shelter, right in the centre of a carpet of bluebells, and it made a really beautiful setting to shoot in! I would love to take credit for its construction, but we were just lucky.
I had in mind some ideas for this year's bluebell shoot to make it a little different to ones I've shot in previous years, and one of those ideas was to create a 'fairy set' of photos. I've done some of the post-processing myself on some of these images to create a sort of hand-coloured sepia effect.
