The training course had supplied studio lighting. I wanted to use them again. So now I looked to hire a studio and model. More pressure and complexity, but I knew it was the way to go.
I didn't want just a plain white background studio, I was looking for a studio with some character and variety of sets.
I always get nervous before a shoot. But worrying about what to do with the lights made the next shoot a bit more of a test. The studio owner was great, always there when I had a question. And of course Nicky was very patient. And always ready with a suggestion when I got stuck.
