Here are more photos from my Edwardian evening gown photoshoot with Theresa. These ones are by our friend Daniil @dmanww, who is seriously the most amazing person ever. He’s always ready to help with anything, including a photoshoot. Sometimes behind the camera, sometimes in front of it: Daniil has also modelled for me!
We took most of these photos at the memorial at the Basin Reserve, the old Wellington Cricket grounds. It was hard to keep out all the modern additions and architecture around the memorial out of the photos. After realising how much that limited our angles, we stopped trying to be strictly historical. It was fun mixing it up, with shots of selfies, and 1970s grandstands in the background.
What do you think? Should we try to keep it as plausibly period as possible, or is an interesting photo good even if it’s very anachronistic?
