Winter Nymph with Flick - a series of 11 images

in Photography Lovers3 months ago


This latest shoot is an indepth collaboration between myself and a slew of other artists and creatives. The vision is shared, and the work was done all with the goal of furthering our individual skills.

Here in Australia, it is winter. It's pretty cold, but the rest of the Earth would dismiss our definition of cold as the sort of weather where there's an opportunity to go for a swim. It's between 10 and 15 degrees celcius on any given winter day where I live, with the brief outburst to something in the high teens or low twenties.

So what better way to celebrate this dull excuse for winter? Photograph a Winter Nymph as this particular project called for.

Borne out of a (gasp) Facebook group, called Hunter Creative , this project was one I put my hand up for and landed myself working with the following co-conspirators:

  • Flick (Model)
  • Chelsea Edwards (Make Up)
  • Krista Harding (Hair)
  • Dale Mallory (Assistant)
  • Of course, I completed the photography and retouching, which is what you see below.










    These images were shot in Bonython Park, Adelaide. Equipment used:

    • Nikon Z6
    • Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.8
    • Nikkor Z 85mm f/1.8
    • Godox AD200 portable strobes
    • Neweer 80cm Softbox
    • Godox Foldable Beauty Dish
    • Godox TT685N portable speedlite

    Images were edited in Photoshop. Standard editing process of:

    • Camera Raw Adjustments
    • Cloning and Healing Stamp
    • Frequency Seperation
    • Dodging and Burning
    • Sharpening
    • Colour Grading

    If there's enough demand (or I can be bothered :D ), I might put together another video showing my retouching process when I feel like it and have a little bit more time to go into exhaustive length about the process I follow, and how each enhances the image that comes straight out of the camera.


    Much internal screaming happened when I saw the outfit as I now feel much too cold and I’m currently under three blankets seriously contemplating whether I want to get up and face the cold and it’s warmer today due to cloud cover than it had been for the last few days aaaaaaahhhhhhh 😆

    Looks like a project that came together very nicely 🙃 when you’re doing stuff like this is the entire crew on site so that hair and makeup can be fixed between shots if necessary or are you, model and assistant on your own once hair and makeup have done their thing?

    For this one, it was myself, Dale, Flick, and Brodie (Flick's partner) who were on site. The hair was sorted day before, and the make up artist did her magic about 20 minutes before we shot everything.

    Don't worry, it was cold when we did this. Luckily, it didn't start bucketing down until afterwards when I was driving back home. We escaped the rain only barely. :)
