Botanic Reflections

A couple of the shots of Saturday's headshot shoot with Madrigirls and Cathures conductor Katy in the Botanics.  Having stayed dry all day it started raining just as we got there, so we wound up in the Kibble Palace (which has very nice light - particularly combined with a reflector).   The Kibble isn't actually all that warm if it's not sunny, but this was definitely preferable to the Palm House which was like being in a gloomily exotic sauna.

There seem to be some signs of spring around (although I don't think I'll be retiring my Lovely Scarf just yet…)

32 Miles to Breakfast

The 32 Miles to Breakfast guys have just been signed to Bravesoul Records, so were looking for some new photos (particularly as they've recently acquired an additional member).  Despite a sudden attack of heavy rain (after days of cold-but-sunny) we headed out first to Ashton Lane

Then went down to the abandoned Bandstand and arena in Kelvingrove Park, where the combination of moss-covered red-blaes gives the ground a particularly weird texture - like snow that's frozen into a crust.  Only green and fuzzy…

we did try a few "floating" shots in the style of Cole Rise, but they turned out to be every bit as difficult as you might expect - particularly with 5 people - and William's hair kept giving the game away.

Another shot from the fog last night.  The "beam" effect is better from the road, but I drew the line at standing in it to take long-exposure photos...
