I deliberately chose some exaggerated poses for my subject, partly because he is a clown but also to explore some more unusual positioning of limbs. I expected the shoot to just be a learning process and good practice for directing my model so I was surprised to find two 'keepers' in the final results. I love the image of John looking out of his shed in the rain and the one of him squatting. I thought the latter would look false but it somehow suits his personality and expression.
Next time, I will ensure slightly less clutter around the area - I wanted to include the England chair and the BBQ but the cover for the BBQ was a distraction in a couple of shots (inc the squatting one). Again this is about slowing down and registering everything I can see in the frame.
