Since I had not seen any pics of them before and did not know whom to pick up at the bus station I had to keep eyes open for the only descriptive feature Alina had told me — they were both tall and blonde :) It is rather flattering when anyone, especially such a nice couple, is willing to ride a bus for over two hours just to come for a photo shoot.
We had fun and exhausting four hours going up and down the stairs and shooting at different spots at Rotermann quarter and on top of and around Linnahall. Alina had requested areas with less people, as she might be shy posing with a lot of audience, but as the photo shoot progressed none of us seemed to notice the occasional audience, who at times were even taking photos of us. For the bay photos we actually had an audience of partially or completely naked drunk hobos behind me.
Thanks to Alina and Andrei for the fun photo shoot! So far they have both been pleased with the outcome and such happy emotions are exactly the main reasons why I love taking photos.
