I spent the last week in Florida, photographing alligators and models. Never together, mind you. Which is a disappointment.
Nonetheless, it was an interesting time. The light on the beach was fantastic. And the resulting photographs have a wonderful glow.
Working with a model that can handle strange weather patterns, flying sand, high winds, and a bit of a chill, and still keep her cool and look great, sure makes my job a lot easier. Shannon did a great job on all fronts, and we’re all pleased with the results.
One other interesting note: Neither Shannon nor I are based in Florida; we converged from very different places for this shoot. She’s from frigid Toronto, Canada, while my photography business is based in Portland, Oregon. So we made a neat little triangle, coming from 2 different countries, to merge for a job in sunny Florida.
Randy - Florida!? Wow, you certainly have been logging in the miles this year.
Shooting in the sun has a different feel to it than the grey, lackluster NW, huh? 🙂
I like the first image a lot, it reminds me of a Cheryl Crow album cover. Nice, sunny, summer feel to the image.
Good job Fritz!
FritzPhoto - I can totally see the Cheryl Crow reference, Randy. Good point.
I love shooting in the sun–and not just in the sun, but INTO the sun. I’m a sucker for lens flare.
