This was a paid shoot I did over half term and i decided to use the woods as our location as the blue bells were in perfect season. I chose prior woods as our shooting location and arrived two hours before the shoot to scout locations for the shoot.

Blue Bell Shoot
This was a shoot that I had been wanting to do for a very long time now, but I had to wait for a time that blue bells were in season as they were the key point of what I would base this shoot around.
I already had a few rough ideas in my head as to what the shots would look like, but for the most part of the shoot we just walked through the woods and found locations that we thought would look good to shoot in.
We shot in Leigh Woods. I had heard and seen that there were lots of blue bells there and it wasn't too far for any of us to get there. Fortunately we got lucky with the weather, as although it had been raining all day before the shoot, it was meant to clear up and luckily, it did. I wanted to shoot in the late afternoon at about 5 o'clock so that the light would be softer. This worked very well meaning that the only light modifiers I really had to use were reflectors and a diffuser to avoid harsh shadows.
-The Final Shots-
Overall, the shoot went very well and the shots that I had in mind came out nicely. Below are the majority of the images from the shoot.
