I had a smashing day at Hartpury College near Gloucester the other day. They wanted some pictures of their activities that could be used in a brochure, website and other promotional stuff. I started off photographing one of their former students who is now a Forestry Commission warden in the Forest of Dean. It was pouring with rain and we were getting eaten alive by midges so I didn't hang around, I quickly popped up a light stand and got a few shots that I'm really pleased with. The rain meant that the light was very soft and with a little bit of off camera flash the colours become saturated as well as the photographer. Conditions were a lot easier at the college and I got to spend a pleasant couple of hours meeting photographing the students with a whole host of animals.
