Sat a Golden Woman.
Just along from the villa in Portugal was a small beach that faced out onto the river. It was an East/West beach and so meant that at different times of the day it was backlit or frontlit. On this occassion we went down late in the afternoon so Sophie was in full sun. She covered herself in sand and using the sun as primary light source with some soft flash on axis as fill we produced this set of images. I love the colour balance in the set and the way the hard light defines the shape and musculature of Sophie’s body.
