We’re no strangers to beach photography, we’re based in downtown Delray Beach in Florida and the beach is just down the road, you would think that you can’t go wrong… Well, you can! Beach photography can be tricky, your subject get ‘blown’ out by the blazing sun, their hair gets swept away with the wind, it’s sandy and it gets into your equipment and the salty air constantly fogs up your lens.
So why would you bother?! Because when you get it right, you can’t beat it. It allows me to create an atmosphere of serenity and freedom in the lens, everybody loves the seaside and they’re happy to be there AND it’s perfect for Yoga Photography 🙂
Ruth Morrow Yoga came to us with a request for “fabulous” beach shots and we got to work. A Canon 5d mmiii, a Sigma 70-200 1:2.8 lens and sometimes 3 remote strobe flash guns and a little photoshop work and the results are… well ‘Fabulous’
“I want to see if I can make some money modeling”… Gary McComack came to us 4 months ago with this question and we got to work. There are some rules that you need to follow and the rest we threw out. I believe that the point of a fine portrait photograph is to evoke an emotion, be that a smile or a grimace either suits me as long as they get noticed.
So we set about trying to get Gary noticed, and for all the right reasons. Gary McCormack is 6ft tall and a very good looking guy, this helps! Have a look at his portfolio, leave a comment and let us know what you think.
As an after-note, Gary has been working in various sportswear shoots and is currently working with Mega Models in Miami.
