    Yeah, you are right, using assistants with 5 in 1 is very liberating; the group is very mobile, and the lighting can be adjusted instantaneously… And as long as your assistants are not afraid to get wet, you can place reflector light sources in places where a flash would not be safe.

    It was a very fun shoot :-)

    Photos look really good dude! Useing a couple of assistants with 5 in 1’s looks really liberating and spontaneous as you experiment with different shots quickly and lots of laughs along the way too! Your video tips and narration great!

    Hi; The model is a personal friend of mine. She needed a beach bikini photo to enter in to a ‘tanning’ related competition, so she called me up last week asking to do this type of shoot. She needed the photo right away; that’s why we are in on the beach in the middle of winter :-)

    The photos turned out great, so we may find other ways to use them.

    Did you have a particular goal in mind with this shoot, as in types of shots, framing for magazine copy etc.? Or was it just a case of a stunning model agreed to do it for you?? Was it a commercial shoot essentially I guess…

    We were on the beach about 1 hour, 30 minutes. The sky was clear, so we were not going to get a spectacular sunset, and although it looks warm, was quite chilli, so we left before the sun went down.
