Location: EPFL university campus Lausanne, Switzerland
Model: Margaux Louise Bacher
Makeup and styling: Margaux Louise Bacher
Photography: Damien Lovegrove using Fuji X-Pro2, 16mm, 23mm, 35mm and 50-140mm lenses
Lighting: One Cactus RF60 Speedlight, no softeners, no reflectors

The shoot: A couple of 2½ hour street photography sessions for 5 attendees each. One in the morning and then repeated in the afternoon.

01. Just as we shot our first frame the heavens opened. The dramatic skies made a perfect background on this bridge link between platforms at the train station. I lit Margaux with a Cactus RF60 triggered by a Cactus V6 transmitter. It worked on all our cameras, Fuji, Nikon, Canon and Sony.

02. We took shelter under a concrete canopy. Behind us the rain was cascading down the stairs. I used the same Speedlight as I did in shot 1 but tipped down a bit steeper.

03. While the workshop participants shot with flash I stole a couple of natural light shots. It took a switch from f/11 to f/2.8.

04. The underpass stairs gave me a striking repeating pattern to work with. Again I used a single Speedlight connected to the stand with this special flash bracket.

05. If I was a casting director Margaux would be in a lot of movies. She has the ability to turn on the gravity and takes direction well.

06. This simple natural light set was taken below ground out of the rain.

07. I switched the X-Pro2 to Across film simulation to give
