I recently completed my third shoot with Lucy Fur. We had a brief shoot at Ingatestone Hall last year, and was so happy with the results that we arranged a Christmas shoot together. Both are covered in earlier blogs. We got some great images that we've both been very happy with, and which have also been the subject of great feedback from others. So, when Lucy suggested a Valentines shoot, it took me just a few seconds to reply with a 'blimey yes!'. Actually, I may not have said 'blimey'. It may have been a shorter, much more vulgar, sweary word.

Obviously, as a Valentine themed shoot, pink was to be the order of the day. Pink lighting, pink background, pink candy stripe lingerie and fascinator, and, well, general pinkness. And some hearts, on pants mostly. We also scoured ebay looking for suitable props, and were fortunate enough to win a set of eight red and pink heart shaped cushions. You probably didn't notice them in the shoot. Not least because the seller didn't contact me for three days after I'd won the things. She actually eventually contacted me right in the middle of the shoot. Pah. Still, I guess that means we've got our first set of props ready for next year… ;-)

Anyway, back to this years shoot. We started off with some lovely candy striped lingerie, matched perfectly to a wonderful fascinator borrowed for the occasion from Miss Kitty Hats, who you'll find at this link
here. We tried a couple of lighting setups for this one, both of which turned out to be pretty cool. We changed the lighting and background completely for our next set, something a little bit cheekier. Literaly. We photographed some great lingerie, with a sheer lace heart cut out of the bottom, the images being something of a nod towards vintage pinup style shots. Next up we draped a massive sheet of satiny red material (the one ebay purchase that did arrive on time!) as a background, coupled with an absolutely wonderful corset which Lucy brought along. Much darker images than you might imagine for a Valentines shoot, but as Lucy noted, the images turned out to be 'very OMalley….'.

We then moved back to a very pink background to shoot the same outfit, and got some of the outstanding images of the shoot for me. We also managed to squeeze in a fabulous latex outfit which Lucy brought along, with matching shoes and handbag. This was only the second time I'd shot latex, and was happy to have the opportunity to do so again. For these we stepped away from the valentine feel a little, but returned for the final couple of shots to round off the session. First of all, incorporating some candles spelling out 'with love' which I actually picked up from the newsagents on the way to the shoot. An opportune find, but which got us a great image from the day. Next up was me hanging precariously from a very tall ladder to photograph Lucy top down. I thought it would be funny if I pretended to be falling from the ladder towards Lucy. Lucy didn't find it anywhere near as funny as me, actually, and I think I can safely say that I've now experienced Lucy's proper telling off voice.

Won't be doing that again in a hurry, I can tell you…
