We decided to go a little more on the delicate side for this rough, beachy setting. She brought her purple gown she wore to prom, which mixed well with her red hair and the greenery in the backdrop, and created extremely satisfying pops of color!
It had been a while since I had visited Orange beach, and I was excited to check it out again, this time...camera in hand. Jess Boring had just recently moved back to Pensacola, Fl, from Ohio, and had somehow graciously allowed me to use her as a model for a portrait shoot.
We could not have gotten luckier with the sunset and clouds. My goodness they were gorgeous!! I used High Speed Sync capable triggers and a monolight with a beauty dish attatched, It was a real testament to my asssistant/lightholder/wife that she was able to keep from blowing away holding what may as well have been a heavy wind catcher!
