Out and about with a colleague who is thinking about setting up a 100 Strangers Challenge of her possess (go for it Jennifer!), we had a amazing site scouted and exam shot.
There is a dense forest of metal pillars amongst offices just north of Fantastic Portland Street station, however getting there late it appeared we’d skipped all the subjects. The only folks were being in a pair of soon after get the job done bars. Unwilling to wander absent from a great track record, I resolved to go “Australian” and head into a bar to find anyone to finish the shot.
I received as much as the door.
Coming out as I was about to head in was Martina, a fantastically brilliant Polish ex-pat, performing in London as an Website positioning advisor, and extremely pleased to enable.
We snaked as a result of the metal forest of pillars, using a softbox and the sculpture’s floor lights, and shot absent.
Martina’s amazing red coat had been a single of the issues that had 1st caught my eye. It really is a slender a single, she noted, not ample for a Polish wintertime, in close proximity to Krakow exactly where she originates from. Did she miss out on the snow, I wondered, as I definitely would coming to a drab London wintertime when I was used to glowing white types. No, she described, with the pragmatic outlook who realized it much greater than I – it is really ghastly when it melts.
What strikes me now, is that owning quickly stopped Martina based on her red coat and chic spectacles, neither really featured as we shot – I did not even realise she’d taken her glasses off! She had an amazing poise and assurance, in chatting and in front of the digital camera.
Martina – many thanks so much for taken the time to chat and shoot in the chilly. Hope you like your portrait! Dziękuję!
This is portrait #seventy four of my 100 Strangers Challenge – look at out the group web page and get concerned.
