There was another Strobist photoshoot on the weekend. Lots of fun. Hanging out on a beach with a bunch of models in swimsuits, what could go wrong? Luckily not too much.
The basic shoot went well. My group decided to go easy on the lights. Instead of trying to wrestle with the ambient we went with the flow. It allowed us to work with the models more and do some quick setups. I’m quite happy with the results.
The shot on the right was with Zoe just walking out of the water while one of the other guys was pointing a single strobe at her. Even though it was only a hot shoe light it did the job nicely.
I have noticed that on recent shoots I have tried to simplify the setups and am quite happy with the result. Overthinking may have been my enemy. Maybe I should write a book called “Zen and the art of Photography”. Just checked amazon and the book is already made. There goes that idea, back to taking photos I guess.
