Portrait: Session in new studio

First session in my new studio! The studio is in an attic in my building in Couvet - a very interesting place, not just because it is full of dead flies and other creepy-crawlies, but the height to the ceiling is better than I have ever had (hairlight here I come!) and the sheer volume inspires fullbody portraits which I have been limited from before. The most interesting feature is that it also makes an interesting scenario in itself, given its wooden cell-like appearance. I need to clean out the dust though...

Matilda and I made an introductory test session in the place and many ideas came out pretty neatly, given that we had to stop to vacuum or dust off something every other shot! Here is a selection from the session of a darker theme.
