I have a friend (who also happens to be a work colleague) who has been such a great help to me, and especially so since I tore the tendon in my shoulder. So when he asked me to do a mini photo shoot for his wife for their 30th Wedding Anniversary, I was excited to do it!
The brief was to create a photograph using some of her favourite shoes and handbags to make into an anniversary card. He stealthily removed the shoes (singles) from their boxes as well as a handbag and dropped them off at my place on a Friday morning.
I had another friend staying with me at the time, so very Kindly took me to buy red roses and then set up my pop up studio for me before she left, and I spent the Sunday late afternoon creating this shoot.
I started with a red backdrop but it wasn’t really working for me, so I switched to classic black and loved it.
He was thrilled with the results and chose the feature photo to make the card. Here is the final product:
I also had a play with some Lightroom presets on one of the simpler shots:
Happy Anniversary to Glenn and Ancita!
