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:
- There was an overhanging roof all around which Roslyn was underneath and therefore in shade.
- 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.
