I love autumn. I love the colours, I love the jumpers and the fun scented candles that seem to only come out when the leaves are turning. It's no surprise, then, that in the height of summer I decided to take all of the greenery and paint it gold.
This was possibly my favourite little portion of Thomas Oscar Miles' Conceptual Photography Workshop. I love to shoot outside, I love light filtering through trees and I love making something magical out of something not so magical. This location was a little pathway behind Waitrose, which got lots of through-traffic considering it was a Sunday (dog-walkers, families, cyclists, and many people looking on in confusion as Rosie stood in a bush and wrestled with branches, all the while looking more whimsical than the average person would on a summery Sunday). We made use of a tiny patch of hedge with a tree stuck in the middle of it, but to our cameras, it was an enchanted forest.
Thomas is the kind of photographer who gets stuck in, ready to jump into a head at a moment's notice to demonstrate a pose or move branches around. He takes his time before he starts shooting and it shows. It was fascinating to watch.

Special thanks to the lovely Katie Howie for letting me play with her prism in the first image. I need to get one of those.
