Fire and Ice

London based photographer Sean Tucker submitted this photo for June’s picture of the day.

“I took the shot with Moonika (the model) in Holland Park in London. I had a completely different shot in mind with the setting sun shining through her red hair from behind, and a speed light with Softlighter to fill the front, but in true Brit style the sun refused to show.

One of my photographer friends (Bayek Photography) was with me and he noticed a bush with light coloured leaves which we used a backdrop. I put the off cam flash away and chose to use the soft ambient light and a small handheld reflector as a catch light for the eyes. In the edit I changed the tone of the light green bushes into a muted blue to compliment her colouring and give it a ‘Narnia feel’. Turkish delight anyone?

It was good lesson in finding a different shot when the one you were going for just isn’t. There may be something better if you don’t panic and take the time to look around.”- Sean Tucker
