    Back out again in this outfit, which cost me about £15 altogether (shoes and lace dress from charity shop, skirt from ebay), so I am definitely getting my monies worth with this one. And to be honest I was not entirely happy with the images from my previous shoot, that wardrobe malfunction did not help.

    So yesterday i decided to head out with my x-e2 to capture some autumnal colour but despite there being a carpet of fallen leaves already, the trees still look positively springlike! I ventured from the queens back garden (Sandringham country park) to the queens own private train station at nearby Wolfreton.

    I do not know what made me go there, but while driving through the village I noticed the station gate was open, and me being me, I stopped the car in its tracks and had a nosey inside. I took some photos then the station master came out and kindly offered to turn the lights on for me, what a kind offer! The sun was setting but the sky was not playing ball so the station lights really helped; i took my speedlights out of the car at the weekend, so the station lights helped immensely! I took a few photos but by then I was cold and needing a shot of coffee.

    Before I left I thanked the station master, and he told me I was welcome back any time to take some fashion photos, well it would be extremely rude not to! He also told me he wished more people would visit the station to take photographs, so there you go, if your ever up in Norfolk, and you have a model in tow, head over to Wolfreton!

    Oh I don't know about that, but next time I shoot there I shall take a couple of speedlights with me, maybe the 120cm octobox, this image was taken at 1/40th at f2.8, ISO 500, it was really dark under the canopy, even with station lights on, so a little bit more light would have been nice to play with, a definite must for when I revisit sometime!

    Two very nice shots Alexandra, I like the 1st the most because of how you got the lighting and you looking out of the frame.
