I loved working with Leigh and this set tells a real story. It shows her journey from quite self concious, nervous young girl to a pretty, confident woman. We had a lot of fun shooting these pictures and I think it shows in the results. Really I should have called it "Leigh and Gideon" because he pops up towards the end of the shoot and the final shot is one of my all time favourite images.
I was using a wide angled lens for this shot, I love the slightly distorted perspective to the image, the flash has given a really nice washed out feel to the foreground and the setting sun in the background adds a splash of colour.
