I made this image during yesterday’s shoot at Jacuzzi Winery, an absolute fabulous location for our class. In fact the 3 images in the following post are also from our Jacuzzi visit. We could have spent days there with all the variety this beautiful winery offered. I can’t wait to go back and taste some of their wines tomorrow ;~)
The challenge for this image was the lighting. Both girls were in direct sunlight. I blocked the sun with my Westcott 84” parabolic umbrella – I love that umbrella for brightly lit situations just like this. One I had the sun blocked, the two girls were bathed in a nice, soft light.
Next, I needed to add a little light from camera right, my Quantum flash through my Zumbrella, to gave me the dimensional lighting I was looking for.
Framing the girls up in the door and arch in the distance finished the composition giving us a great image of these two lovely ladies.
Camera specs: Canon 7D fitted with 18-200mm IS lens at 100, F5.6 @ 1/320 second, ISO 200. Enjoy! -David
