Brave by Brad Daley Wagner on Flickr.
How could we not do a Brave shoot at the meet up, when we had a real life Merida like Grace here at our disposal? When the idea was mentioned I immediately jumped on it when I realized I knew exactly how to make the Will-o-wisps. That’s right, they’re not photoshop magic, just real magic!
I think this was definitely the one shot at the meet up where I felt most in my element. It was weird for me joining in on lots of the other shoots because they were just so different from what I’m used to (lots of fun though!). So when I got to set this up and had a crowd of other shooting along it was a bit surreal. It wasn’t even until I was about half way through shooting the wisps that I realized that the whole area was stinging nettle and that my arms were itching haha
