... The 2nd and 3rd shoot locations were outside and involved a 'totally gnarly dude' of an automobile, fur coats and some de garbed mug shots. I wanted to go for a slightly antiquated feel to these images and after experimenting with a vintage palette, I opted for good old fashioned black & white!
It was a very overcast and this would have been great with an additional strobe as the clouds act like a massive soft box for the natural light. As we didn't have a portable strobe I tryed out my SB900 speedlight for a few of the shots. I managed to get some great shots but if I had the chance again, I would definitely use a portable strobe or two and also try to reduce the background detail which is interfering slightly with the girls and the buggy.
We shot for approx. 3 1/2 hours altogether, although this sounds a lot; with location and clothing changes / makeup etc, time flew by and the opportunitiy to get the shots we wanted was limited.
All in all a great days shooting. Thanks for listening San Diego... it's good bye from me and good by from Tits McGhee!
