Amy Stockdale: "I saw a similar image to this and knew it was something I wanted to try, but with no external flash I wasn't sure how. While waiting for a bus, I went into a newsagents and saw a magazine describing an alternative way to get this shot! After an evening taking over the kitchen (the best-lit room in the house) and a wee bit of Photoshop, I got the image I wanted."

Philip Norfolk: "My cousin Catharine on an evening out. Shot using a film camera with a very narrow depth of field, so her glasses ended up in focus and not her. Camera, Olympus OM4; lens, 55mm f1.2 at f1.2; film, Ilford XP2."
