Here are a few images from a location shoot with the model Ella Rose muse. The location was an old Mill, in which we had access to a few of the empty floors.

Old mill building are filled with history not only in the terms of what was made there. But also of the people and machinery that once worked and ran in these building. A chance to work with the Artistic nude model Ella Rose Muse inside this location dosn’t often come alone. As Ella Rose is from Oxfordshire and dosn’t get up north that often. So when it did it I grabed it.

Model: Ella Rose Muse
Photographer: Richard Spurdens
Lighting: Elinchrom Ranger Quadra and natural light
Camera: Canon 5D MkIV fitted with 70-200 f2.8 lens

The first area we worked in didn’t have very much natural light. I had brought along my Elinchrom Ranger Quadra which I fitted with a soft box. To provide some directional light and also set it up to overpower the low ambient light of the location. This helped to hid the background area which was slightly messy.

First floor location images

This area of the mill didn’t have much natural light so a single studio strobe provided the light source for this set of images
A landscape view of this area gave a different feel to the area – again lit with a single studio strobe fitted with a soft box
Ella Rose seated this time working her posing against the support pillar

The next set of images where shot on one of the upper floors. Which did have some better natural light to work with.

Upper floor images

The upper floor of the mill had some good natural light and the old heavy fire door seemed a good back drop for Ella to pose against
The area of the mill had some good natural light and I liked the receding patterns of the windows and pillars in this area.
A tighter crop for this shot of Ella Rose against the heavy fire door – Ella skin tones stand out well in the natural light.
Again a tighter crop for this shot of Ella Rose against the heavy fire door – Ella skin tones stand out well in the natural light.
