This week marked the return of Wolfe Cottage Club Nights and it all kicked off with some ultraviolet fabulousness.
Caroline, Wolfe Cottage’s resident make-up artist, did a fantastic job with the costume design and make up, creating two wonderful, and contrasting, looks for the two models.
Having shot UV on a couple of occasions I hoped to be able to bring something different to this one. To that end I took along my flashgun, some ‘gels’ (sweet wrappers) and a flashbender softbox. The plan being to add a little bit of colour from behind the models without overpowering the ultraviolet light. I was a little concerned that even with the flash at it’s lowest setting that with the high ISO needed it would still be too strong.
I needn’t have worried. It worked wonderfully. It was a little tricky to get the flash positioned in the right place, but a little bit of trial and error gave some results that I was more than pleased with.
When all was said and done it was another fantastic club night and I’m looking forward to next month’s.
