I worked with Lucy on her first ever studio shoot a few months back. She has great features and the height and body to potentially have a great modelling career if she sticks with it. I decided to do a location shoot with her to experiment with lighting.. There was a bit of a disaster at the start of the shoot. All the lights were set up perfectly with the exact light that I wanted and then.. bam! One of them was knocked over destroying my light.. so the whole shoot was quite experimental on both parts. I stubbornly tried to recreate the light I earlier had, failing miserably. Looking back I should have scrapped my whole lighting idea and created something new with what I had. Anyway, lesson learnt. Always use sand bags on flashes! Even indoors!
I first saw this photograph in a cafe on Degraves Street in Melbourne a couple of years ago and took a photo of it with my phone, but have only today discovered who the photographer was. Photograph of Sophia Loren, in Rome, Italy, taken in 1955 by David Seymour.
