Shot these during a snowstorm a couple of weeks ago. This girl had never done any modeling, but I thought she did a great job during this very brief session, especially considering the cold, snow and the wind.
Before we got out in the storm I told her that I wouldn't really be able to direct her much and asked her to just "perform" for the camera, and I think she did great.

Model; Deana
Make-up/Styling; Kate Carroll

Oh, I am aware that there are some stray hairs in these images, that's gonna happen when you shoot in a blizzard!

I've been in lots of snow storms over the years. Usually you can barely see the sky because of all the snow flying around. Yet in these photos, we have the bluest sky I've ever seen. And since they are cropped so tight there is no way to know if you're even outdoors. You could be on a seamless blue background and have thrown a few snow flakes in. Did you get some shots with snow flurries and other blizzard type effects swirling around the model that would give a "live look" to these photos? I would think a few of the model shown struggling against the wind would work nicely.

On another note, did you have any problem with the cold and/or snow in regard to the camera, lens, and battery life?

Cheers,
rfs

Thanks Steve.

I really like #2 as well. I've had a few people suggest that I remove that hair flying across her lips, but I kina like it for some reason. It makes her look like Snidley Whiplash, if you remember him.
:-)
The intensity of her eyes really makes #2 my favorite.

While we were outdoors we here only a few steps away from the house. In fact I was on the sidewalk. I had her stand in a spot that allowed a clear view of the open sky behind her. Kind of difficult here with all the houses, wires and trees.
I had wanted to shoot these about 20 minutes or so early so as to have the sky a little brighter. By the time we got set up the skies were just a bit darker then I wanted.
In order to get the blue in the sky like that I shot this with a single hot-light and set the white balance to the default incandescent setting, which really brings out the blue in a grey sky. I did tweek the blue/cyan in PS with the hue/saturation adjustment, but even just after the levels adjustment the sky was unnaturally blue...which is what I wanted.

We weren't outside long enough to have any problems with the cold or with batteries, etc.
I think 3 or 4 minutes was all it took and we were done. I got everything set up and did my metering on the tree she was standing next to and then brought her out and started shooting. Because of the wind and snow she was getting watery eyes and I got a lot of shots with her blinking, but all in all it was a very successful shoot, even though it was very brief.
