Kaylee is putting together a modelling book and I wanted to work on stronger compositions and directing a subject, so we met up at the painful hour of 7am to capture some of that magic morning light. So a few coffees later and a drive out to l’Île-Perrot we found a bizarre mix of nature and urban settings. I had shot at this tree with Myriam and her family last year, but found it harder to control the lighting for a group, but the strobe was quite effective with just one person. Post processing on the tree shots included some extra blurring on the trees and colourizing the water to give it a romantic quality that Lac Saint-Louis just doesn’t have without some unnatural enhancements.
I have been looking for a good excuse to shoot on these rolling hills on Don Quichote, I love the clean line of a hill rising up to the sky. There are a bunch of shots of Kaylee in her hot prom dress, which I am not permitted to share with the world yet, because it is needs to be a surprise for her beloved. You will have to look for those on my website at the end of June.
Another stop in the hood was Urban l’Île-Perrot, where we found this little skate park that was covered in colourful graffiti scrawl. You never would have known we were next to two prestigious golf courses and a quaint leafy park, aaaaaaaah blissful photographic deception. Setting out at that unGodly hour last Saturday I never would have guessed that I would get such a diverse film.
