You might recognise Lydia. I photographed her last year in Bunratty Castle. When we were shooting that day the idea for a violin shoot came to mind and it wasn’t long before we got the opportunity to give it a go. The location was amazing – an ancient library which oozed atmosphere. It was like someting out of a Harry Potter set. Huge thanks to Jody for finding it and getting us permission to shoot there.
Sarah was with us again helping out with makeup and did a fantastic job. We managed to get three different looks for Lydia on the day. This second look was in keeping with the surroundings of the library.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get to shoot Lydia in the final gothic look. I had my camera set up for an elaborate composite shot (coming soon!) so I could not move it – but I did borrow Jody’s camera for a very quick shot. I hid a flash in behind some window netting in order to create the dappled texture.
