Photo Shoot with Xya
Beauty and The Beast
It was a cold July morning. Very, very cold. So cold Starbucks was serving coffee on a stick and politicians had their hands in their own pockets.
For our photo shoot with Xya we decided on a location near the Nepean River, close to Penrith. The fall foliage and white fences would give us the country feel we were looking for in this shoot. As it is with most out doors activities we can not control the weather. There was a little wind and it was very cold, but the sun was shining down on us.
Never the less Xya soldiered on with a selection of clothes you would wear in the height of summer. I used a blow dryer to remove the lens cap off my camera and the photo shoot was on.
We hope the video brings you into the shoot. I feel it’s one step closer to being there in person. Pity you can’t have video in a printed magazine, huh?
Here is the digital media we created from the shoot. We hope you enjoy it.
