Well, what a summer we’re finally having! It’s amazing the amount of people who I have heard complain about the heat. To be fair, it is a bit on the toasty side.

Anyway onto Philosophy student BlueJaz. She’s just starting out in modelling, so to add some variety to her portfolio we picked a range of summer outfits and went out to catch the evening sun.

We originally connected on another project but decided on a little test shoot as we both had a free day. It’s a really good idea before a project to have a test shoot. Just something short and simple. It’s a great way to connect with the model plus get a few extra portfolio shots for the both of you.

Pro Tip when shooting in the summer. Stay out of the midday sun. Firstly you’re going to roast your model, and secondly it’s not flattering light. There’s 3 ways to handle those situations. Shade, fill flash or a reflector. Stay tuned to the blog as I’ll be doing some posts on how to get better images yourself while shooting in the summer.
