Shiny Cube & Deck Chair

So strolling along the beachfront I come across this shiny cube with a deck chair. Couldn't quite fathom what it was all about and where it had come from. It looked shiny and amazing, and I wanted to shoot it right away. It had so much potential, ideas where flowing through my pip.

As soon as I got home I began phoning around to see who was available for an early morning shoot the next day. Fortunately I managed to find two willing bodies to adorn the shiny cube.

The next morning we had a later start than expected, and found the shiny cube not so shiny at 7 in the morning - it was damp and sticky from the sea air and the morning clouds were desperately trying to hide the sun. Needless to say we were already sweating as if just exited a sauna.

The shoot turned out to be more difficult than I imagined, and had to really dig deep to try and capture what I wanted. Needless to say, I am gonna have to go back and try again.

The models were great, and struggled to hold their poses and gazes, trying desperately not to laugh. No one can ever say my shoots are not fun!!

From the shiny cube we moved over to the Skate Park and finished off there. Lots of laughing (especiallCheck out the whole shoot:y at me trying to slide down into the pool, and then trying to get out) Fortunately no pics were taken.

Check out the gallery - hope you enjoy as much as I enjoyed capturing them.

Until next time,
