Gaz - Making a Splash with a Harbour Beach Modelling Portfolio Shoot

I am just going to admit right here and now that the idea of Gaz doing a post-swim beach shower shot was not mine. It was Gaz's idea; and I for one am glad he presented it to me so I could give it some thought as to how best make the shot. The thing with photographs, if they are not bad shots, they generally look easy to make. I mean they should look easy; who wants shots that make you wonder why it doesn't work.. You want pictures that make you think, "Wow" "that's great" "their a knockout" "I'd love to go there" that sort of thing - not gosh - "they really should learn something about styling or lighting or how to hold the camera straight.." You know what I mean; there's plenty of that on your Facebook page, Snapchat or Insta already.. So I did what any good photographer will do. I said, "great, but lets start over here first" which to be fair to myself was the right move because once you get wet you are no longer dry. Continued below - just scroll down!

So starting with our key looks first - full length, mid and head shots also gave me time to think about how the outdoor shower shot might work best. Initially the sun was still too high, the cliff on one side looked very dull and shaded; there was plenty to think about. So we got started on the 'simple' shots which also gives me time to get to know the model, let them get used to me and the camera; loosen up, and get that all important connection between the model and the camera happening. By the time we were done with those looks, the sun was lower; and I saw I could grab back-lit shots, the type I had been planning to do sometime at another Sydney beach; and also shoot out into the harbour for some blue water with well balanced light. Thanks Gaz for a great shoot. Need a folio, hit me up; I loved shooting this folio Makin' It Happen - Location Modelling Portfolio for Gaz,.
