A beautiful summers day at the Kymin. At 9am on the morning of the shoot I decided to make a newspaper kite for use in making this image. The girls were stars! The light was very contrasty but with cloud patterns in the sky I decided to take the opportunity of silhouetting the trio against the skyline.

The resulting image has stolen my heart! I have chosen a ‘chocolate’ treatment of the image for that nostalgic feel… this is my version of sepia, but without the yellow. Very rich in tone and much more contemporary than traditional sepia.
