A very quick shoot of no more than 10 minutes with Mike Lawrence produced some striking images (in my opinion!).
A simple 2 light set-up and a table of cheap, Victorian artefacts sourced from eBay created an opportunity to tell a few stories of alchemy and other far-fetched scenarios.
Mike was superb at playing the part and his character shines through on the final photos. A little bit of added ‘Photoshoppery‘ added some smoke and lighting effects to complete the impression of mystery and intrigue.
