The Roaches and Sammy

Spent last Sunday at the Roaches with a lovely model call Sammy, her boyfriend Pete (who I kept calling Chris?) and Steve, what a great day... wet, windy and cold perfect for a wuthring Heights themed shoot. Sammy brought some great clothes that fitted well in to the brief we had spoken about previously (always good to plan). The Roaches had many great location to choose from and after a bit of a scout around we found a great spot.

I used a single speedlite  mounted on a monopod held by our perfect assistant and stand in Heathcliff Chris.... er I mean Pete (only joking Pete). Metering for the highlights such as the sky and then letting the flash on ETTL and 3 stops under power to fill.

Here is my first attempt, loved the red dress which had a good contrast with the background lifting the image,

I call this.... 'Where's Heathcliff'

Here two of the same image one with Sammy's dress straps removed to add a more period feel, what do you think?

Not had much chance to go through the images from the groups visit to Cambridge, It turned out to be a nice day for sight seeing but a little bit contrasty for photography. Anyway here's three to be going on with (some critique is appreciated)]
