It has been planned for a while and this year we had 3 times larger shooting team then last year.
For the story line of the shoot I took some Cornish ghost stories: “Girl in the Rain”, “Lady with the lantern”, “Jamaica Inn Pirate”
The costumes were hired from Redruth Drama Society, some were made, collected and restored by me.
As always, the weather did not cooperate for our ghostly themed photo shoot. It was gleaming sunshine, so we had to de-tour to Treskillard Mines before heading to St Agness Wheal Coates. It has turned out to be a fantastic place with picturesque ruins and a few hideaways from the killing light.
I’ve been blessed with two assistants on the team what made use of light and smoke effects much easier.
Models: ?Suki Fisher, Olivia Hack, Pearl Ks, Luke Brown and Milarna Halton
Make up/hair: Rebecca Madden
Assistants: Ella-Mae Searly (work experience student) and Kenton Dalziel
There turned out plenty of “non-haunted” shots in the end too, which will go in a different series “Tales from Long ago…”
