I had meeting at Next Models in Miami in the morning and since it's a little bit of a drive, I decided I'd make the most of the day and book a couple models who lived in the area. It was around 1 when we started down on Lincoln Rd. and any good photographer knows this isn't the most ideal time to shoot...in fact, it's horrible. The 3 of us met up and walked around Lincoln Rd for awhile before one of the models suggested a spot along the water in an industrial area. Since I wasn't happy with what I had been getting to that point, I decided that we might as well try...very glad we did. The area wasn't much to write home about...pretty abandoned except for some city workers and construction going on about 200 yards away. The gate was open to this area so we parked and started shooting with the bright sun still high in the sky. Suppose just an example of making the most of the conditions you have to work with in the light that is available.

The other night I had to shoot a band to get them some updated shots for their new tour and decided I'd try to squeeze in a short fashion shoot with a model I had been meaning to work with for a couple weeks. Turns out we only had a little time...in fact, when I looked back at the time stamp on the photos, it was 18 minutes from first to last. I called her just an hour before so there was no planning at all....we didn't discuss makeup, outfits and neither of us had even been to the exact location before...we never even met before. Gia showed up and within 5 min after a quick hello and a pick of which dress we should use that she brought we were shooting. We started with a few natural light ones as the sun hit the horizon over the city across the water and then moved to a banyan tree for a one light set up (Yongnuo 560 III bare to camera right).
That's it...super quick and super simple. Hopefully we got some shots for her portfolio her agent will love to add.
