I was looking for David but found Louise – someone I had wanted to photograph but not warned yet. She has been getting into photography so was keen to be a victim. I dragged her away from her desk in a cluttered lab into the herbarium for a few minutes.
The herbarium is a wonderful place for finding different light. Here the light was flooding through a glass door and bouncing off the floor so we have a bit of “ghoul ligthing” which is supposed to be unflattering but I think it works well here. I took about a dozen shots. This was one of the last. We spent more time chatting than making photos.
