About two years ago I was able to photograph Meluxine while we were both in Sydney.
At the time I was staying in a hotel room on Sydney harbour, and wanted try and use it in various ways other than the usual shots on a bed and furniture.
As it was late in the afternoon and still light, I started by using the afternoon light.
I wanted to try to do a few photographs through the window, so that you can mix reflection of what is behind you with the model that you are photographing.
The room also had a large bathroom with a spa bath and large mirror, so we decided to use it for a few photos.
I knew that later on I wanted to use the city lights, while we were waiting for it to get dark enough I closed the curtains and used a torch with a coloured gel on it to do a few studio style photos against one of the walls.
Once it got dark enough I opened the curtains, set the camera to the right exposure for the ship lights in the background, then used the torch to provide light on Meluxine.
We then moved out onto the balcony to use the city lights around the harbour as the light source.
I quite enjoy using different light sources, particularly ones that are already in place, it's not always easy, but can be fun.
I haven't had a chance to photograph Meluxine again, but plan to one day when we're both in the same area again.
