Côte d'Azur, September 2010

P.S. a note on technique:

This was shot approx 20 minutes after sunrise, when the sun was already quite strong and required a ND4 filter. No way that I could have lit the foregound w/o flash.

In this set I used a quite strong 1200Ws Elinchrome Ranger portable flash mounted on a light-stand at the water's edge, triggered via Elinchrome wireless.

I did a simmilar one a few days later [link] with 3 Nikon SB800 camera-flashes (providing a 600Ws equivalent) mounted on a lightweight tripod and a LastoLite TriFlash adapter in the water. Trigger done via PocketWizards. The SB800s are much lighter and contrary to the portable studio-flash, I dared to put them into the sea to compensate for less power with getting the flash closer to the model. They wil probably become my standard for this kind of situations in the future.
