The farm we stayed at in Cholderton had a few opportunities for night-time photography. This avenue of trees formed a great background. My original idea was to get Ruby to run through the tunnel with the phone on…creating a moving line. As we continued it turned more into a portrait session. The idea is that the phone lights the face and some of the tree-tunnel as well. Technically the whole thing was tricky, especially after a few beers. The tree was lit with my LED bike light and Ruby was lit with off-camera flash and also from the screen on her phone. Not quite technically perfect as her eyelids are slightly blurred but overall I’m happy with it. Interesting how one idea ends up developing into something completely different. Fuji XT-3, 10-24 lens.
