A Quick Shoot with Marciia
On my recent trip out west to Victoria, British Columbia. I had the opportunity to shoot with a bunch of great Agencies, Boutiques, and Models. One such model was the lovely and energetic Marciia Gringe. This girl is a talented model with a ton of energy and lots of great ideas, and as you can see from the few sample photos Marciia has a look that was perfect for this set.
We shot in an old Victorian haunted alley/pathway found in the old city near the inner harbor. At the end of this pathway is a haunted wishing well, which I didn't get the full story on, but it is included on the haunted walking tour that runs most nights. This location seems to be a popular spot for tourists and photographers alike, as we ran into quite a few of both well we were there.
I lit most of this series with just a single medium soft box as a hard-edged accent light, and a large shoot through umbrella for overall fill and balance with the ambient light. The different types of stone and brick work made for some great textures, and the play of light and shadows through he corridor really caught my attention. The graffiti and art work just added to the look and feel of the location, and gave it a bit of a modern twist.
