Roslyn was the 9th person in my 100 portraits project last year. She was chosen by Ossian. I enjoyed photographing her red hair against the wood of the stable doors where we met. She was great fun and a really easy going subject. The bright sunlight that day would have been hard for me to deal with since I was only beginning to understood the inability of the camera to cope with direct sunlight, and I hadn’t started using a diffuser to help. Thankfully the stables had two great things going for them:

  1. There was an overhanging roof  all around which Roslyn was underneath and therefore in shade.
  2. There were white walls all around reflecting and diffusing the bright sunlight so Roslyn was well lit even in the shade.

This would have been my second choice.
