Golden Acre Park, Leeds
This was just a family outing to a nearby park; no photo shoot was planned, and I just took a few spontaneous shots of Haidi at a couple of pretty spots in the park.
Oakwell Hall, Birstall
We chose the grounds of the beautiful, historic Oakwell Hall for a more thought out shoot. We bought a cream silk tunic for Haidi to wear and made sure we were out on a late, bright afternoon for some pleasant lighting. We focused on mood and atmosphere images and also went for a few theatrical pics conveying some hard emotions.
This photo shoot was followed by another one a few days later, at a location that I carry deep in my heart - Top Withens, the ruin whose location inspired the location of the house in "Wuthering Heights", the famous novel by Emily Brontë. We made some great images on the day, and I am very excited at the prospect of editing them some time this autumn.
