Model: Anuschka - :iconalfa-romeo:
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.

Looking at your visual language preference I think I understand your "boring". But why "fake"??? Because I got up at sunrise which I normally don't do except for photography? Or because I tried to recreate the look I actually did see with my eyes that morning in camera through controlled lighting? Or for working together with a good-looking model?

Lovely image, and great use of natural lighting :D

Thanks - although I cheated a bit re natural light - it's a quite strong 1'200Ws portable flash from front (w/o diffuser) since it's shot directly into the sun.

I'll have to remember that the next time I do a sunset photo shoot with a model... I did one recently but the images just didn't turn out quite so nice... a few did, but not all.
Thanks for the tip :)

:-) you are very welcome.

Pls. remember that you need either a very strong flash (e.g. the equivalent of 6x SB800/SB900 working togehter from the water's edge or 3xSB800 if you can get them closer to the model and you also need something reliable to trigger them) or to work in the 5 minutes the sun is just rising/setting. The flash needs to be on the side (corresponding to the sun's position) and NOT near/on the camera.
