“California gurls
We’re unforgettable
Daisy Dukes
Bikinis on top
Sun-kissed skin
So hot
we’ll melt your popsicle
Oooooh Oh Oooooh”
Katy Perry ‘California Gurls’

Well, you can keep your California girls…  Bolton lass Melissa could give them a run for their money any day in her ‘Daisy Dukes’.

She was wearing the shorts when she arrived at the studio, so we decided to use them for a short set.  Nothing fancy – a couple of studio lights on Melissa and one on the background.

By the way, writing this is making me feel really old as I remember watching ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ when it originally aired on TV in the early ’80s.  I always had a soft spot for Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane.

      Hello Abeiku. Thanks for visiting my site and for taking time to leave a comment. Much appreciated.

      I have set of Elinchrom DLite IT 4 (400 w/s) studio flash lights that I usually take with me on shoots. The photos of Melissa above were taken with the Elinchroms.

      If I’m in a hire studio I’ll use whatever lights they have, eg Bowens, Elinchrom, Broncolor, etc.

      I had a look at your website – http://www.abeikuarthur.co.uk/ – you have some very good images on there.
