I have not had a really serious attempt at shooting people, so I thought I should have a go. You've heard the saying "never work with children or animals", well that rings especially true when they are your own!!! I dont know how many times they were asked to look at dad, grrrrrrr. Anyway we spent the last 90 minutes before sunset on the beach with a few preconceived ideas for the shoot and other than the lone bubble shot we ticked them all off. Hats off to those that do this, dealing ever changing natural light with 2 strobes for fill, kept me on my toes and the brain working overtime. I know they work for me, but I am biased, so what do you think? 1. Started off with some jumping, tricky to get them to jump and look at the camera. 2. Some bubble fun, typically the sun went behind cloud just as we started this and because I was shooing with my 300mm I couldnt get a fast enough shutter speed without increasing the ISO (handheld), so thought it best to save this for another day. 3. Look at the .....arrgghh nevermind. 4.Another attempt at a B&W, mainly decided upon due to the very strong orange cast from the setting sun. 5. A test shot while I was close that I quite like, biased though. I shot all of these with my 300mm which meant I had to be a fair distance away from the flashes which makes setting up difficult to say the least, but I prefer the look the 300mm prime gives me over the nifty 50 for full body shots. 6. My favourite of them all, lighting isnt great (skin looks a little blotchy?) but personally for me the smile wins. First time I have used to strobes at the same time, that is going to take alot practice.
