Veronique | Harpist

A supposedly fun thing that I’ll never do again? Try photographing outside at 3pm with my full studio set-up. Overpowering the sun with flashes set to full power is one thing, but just trying to make out the image on the back of my camera is another. Or try the wind buffeting your backgrounds, or photographer and subject just plain baking on the spot for 2 hours.

So why did we put ourselves through this? Well, VĂ©ronique’s harp would not fit in my basement studio, for one (or rather, the stairs down to my studio). This meant we had to improvise and set-up on my back driveway. I think it was worth it, though, and on top of everything else, me and the shed even got a private harp concert during the shoot.
