Shooting at Lockridge Park in Alburtis Pa is a photographer’s dream if you like textures and stones. The site of a former iron ore furnace first built there in 1868. All that remains now are these partial stone structures that appear as beautiful ruins and set the stage or rather a backdrop for photo shoots. On any given day you can find a photographer out shooting amongst the ruins. A nice setting for a wedding ceremony or just a fun model shoot, I try to get out to Lockridge a few times a year, once in the summer and again in the autumn season.

It really can be a fun and magical place for model shooting, the juxtaposition of a model’s beauty back dropped with the textures of the stone and cracked cement are a lot of fun for me. In this image we see Whan giving us an awesome fitness look with a classic pose of negative space in the arms and legs, I then edited the image using split tones in Lightroom to enhance the textures of the stone and cement. The sky is bright blue above her so the stone is holding the blues although our human eye cannot see it… until the color is saturated a bit. I love split tone editing as long as it is not over done. In this case I made sure none of the split tones are on the model, just on the textures. Most times when I use split tones I use it very sparingly on my images. However today I wanted to go a lot stronger to give a little surreal or magical feel.

Whan was a lot of fun to work with, she has a classic Thai/Asian fashion look and style and she can shoot fitness to. She’s dedicated to a healthy lifestyle of fitness and exercise as can be seen by her body. Follow her in Instagram https://www.instagram.com/whannasert/

Till next time… and thanks for stopping by and reading.
