Project 52 ... 32

Meet the lovely Mel...

D200, Tamron 17 - 50 f2.8, SB800 bounce umbrella, Vivitar 285 + gridspot

I first met Mel many years ago; she wasn't in a mini at the time, she was wearing leather trousers! Here she is pictured in her pride and joy; a soft top Mini Cooper. A wonderful lady, always smiling (even at my jokes...), Mel was easy to photograph.

I set up an SB800 in a bounce umbrella to camera left and a Vivitar 285 to camera left and behind Mel. Both triggered remotely. For the whole of the shoot Mel was more or less in the middle of the two lights. The biggest problem was the reflection of the SB800 in the bodywork of the mini. Being curved and metallic I had to be very careful indeed.

We took a lot of shots and had a great laugh! A big thank you to Mel for being such a good sport.
