Portraits in abandoned spaces // Megan

Portraits in abandoned spaces // Megan

There's something poetic about abandoned buildings. Often there's enough left behind to give you clues about what it was like in the past, and without realising it you naturally fill the space with your imagination. 

This vacant nursery is just beautiful to photograph portraits in. The ivy creeping over the windows have grown through little cracks in the wood, so a little bit of the outside has made it's way indoors; and on a nice day the light filtering through all the windows is soft and glowy. On the day of the shoot, it was rainy and so dark I wasn't sure whether I was going to get any decent images  (hello Canberra winter!)- but after looking at the back of my camera, with images shot wide open at 1.6, it was like my camera could see what my eye could not. Check it out!

Elly + Poppy // Gooromon Park Canberra

Elly + Poppy // Gooromon Park Canberra

I had the pleasure of photographing Elly at Gooroomon Park Horse Riding School in Wallaroo a couple of weekends back. With a background of horse riding and a degree in animal behaviour, you could say that she was a certified horse whisperer!  

Makeup by Michelle Bui, floral crown by Lady Larissa floral designer. 

notes: shot with Canon 6D, Canon 85mm 1.8, Sigma 50mm 1.4 Art lens, Tamron 24-70 mm 2.8 ; processed with my VSCO Cam M5 -inspired Lightroom Preset
