For survival horror, the grim concrete that permeates the average convention centre is perfect fodder for photographs, and in this case we borrowed the stairwell of a nearby hotel for some photos. Some flash, some available light and some grain and soft focus made this a fun and kind of a tricky one to do well, which included bringing a large flash rig on a light stand into the stairwell, lots of tripod and dealing with a gaggle of curious onlookers watching much of the proceedings through one of the emergency exit door windows.

As usual, Becky was a good sport, enduring dust and endless re-takes to try and get stuff right. In some cases, we never did, but in others, I think we managed to get some pretty neat shots in. For the record, however, focusing a Lensbaby in the dark is something best left to a lot of practice in advance, and hopefully I'll take better advantage of that lens in future shoots. For now, thanks to Becky, and enjoy the pics...





Sure, she looks all innocent now, but when darkness falls...
