In this film Mark Cleghorn takes inspiration to one of his all-time photography inspirations in the famous Marilyn Monroe look and feel. This passion leads back all the way to Marks youth where the images of Monroe inspired his career and photography as a whole. 

In this session Today, Mark is working within his Studio One Church Window with his model on the ledge of the window, shooting with flash to bring a light and bright tonality to his overall image. Later in the shoot, Mark then brings his model forward with the light coming from behind to give her the natural separation. So this film is all about controlling the strobe light alongside the natural daylight within the ambiance of the set as a whole.
