Another one from last week's shoot with Estrany for my "Soho Noir" project.

The gel on this is a little vivid perhaps. I was about to pull it back to something a little more blue/grey to match the colour of the metal paneling (camera left - glowing turquoise in this one!). It had a lovely smokey quality to it, which I'd like to have captured. Unfortunately, that wasn't to be...

We fired off three or four frames, of which this was one, before we were joined by an unexpected assistant - and a not entirely sober one. After he'd explained about his time in Wormwood Scrubs Prison, and his nuanced relationship with various ethnicity of women he borrowed my phone to leave a five minute, ranting voicemail with his probation worker.

Short story; we will come back and shoot this location properly another day...

Info for Strobist:
