Ida was a total professional - completely at ease in front of the camera, I didn't have to ask her to pose in any way; she just knew how to move and what worked well for her body. So much so that at one point I asked her if she'd ever been a dancer because she held herself with such grace.
I have a load from this shoot that I'm really pleased with, and selecting one for the portfolio was tough.
2 Elinchromes aimed at the background.
1 hairlight, camera right, half power.
2 huge soft boxes on 1/2 power either side of the camera.
