Very quick post this time, just to show some behind the scenes snaps from a shoot last week. Animal photography is always a challenge, but can be a lot of fun. I spent Friday on location in a muddy field in East Sussex persuading a pig to pose nicely on a short-lived white background. Cinnamon and her companions were more interested in trying to chomp through the flash cables and run through the paper backdrop than anything else, but we got the photos we needed in the end, with the help of a lot of food and back-scratching.
Torture tests for Manfrotto light stands and Hensel flash cables – fortunately they stood up to the pigs’ best efforts to eat them:
Cinnamon is tempted onto the set…
and decides that modelling is overrated.
