Buying Lies for #Portraitsproject
Shot on a pretty impressive Spring day at Gloucester Docs, I decided that the modernised, revamped and clean looking docs didn’t really present any suitable backdrops for the band shoot (a very different case at night me thinks) so I went on the hunt..

The folk at this large and airy Antiques store were very willing and intrigued to have me shoot the band in their first floor cafe.
Offering just the right contrast of setting and suggestion. Buying Lies set about taking tea and cake whilst I worked some angles with and offset umbrella.
Opting to go full blown with Nik Collection filter effects, I decided to give the images more pop in post (had i shot this again and had a little more room, I might opt for secondary fill lights). We even got one of the family business to join in for a scene..

After and outside it was time to go full blown with flashes and compliment the ambient golden colours in the sky as the sun had started to set.
A little VSCO in lightroom and it even looks like summer..
