What can be a better project than when your friend makes a dress and wants it photographed, and you want to attempt to take some portraits? A very good match, I think, since I need the practice. Sara made this very cool dress in white and grey, and since we have these heaps of snow in Sweden right now, we decided to take the photos outside (yes, she’s a viking).
We had a day off from work so we met for tea to warm up first, and then went for a walk through the park to find some good spots. It was very cloudy, but I thought that would be a good thing, with no sharp shadows and all that. Of course, the second we set our feet outside the door, an actual snowstorm breaks out (Seriously, trains derailed, cars drove off the roads, people could not get home to their families). I had to wrap my camera in a kitchen towel. Sara had ice running down her face. And then she had to take her coat off for the shots. Ahem.
I have to say that it was sort of hard to concentrate when wet, icy snow was blowing straight in my face and my best friend was standing without her coat on in a veritable blizzard. But here are some of the shots:
