Last Thursday I had the opportunity to shoot in one of the beautiful homes that run along the bay side of Miami Beach. For those not familiar with the actual geography of Miami Beach, it is not a beach in Miami but rather an island off the coast of Florida. Long and narrow, the Atlantic Ocean runs along the east side of the island, and six to ten blocks west is the bay side (Biscayne Bay) which separates the Beach from Florida proper. And once again, South Beach is a made up place, it's how us local's describe the twenty or so blocks of the southern tip of the island of Miami Beach (I live in South Beach, my mailing address is Miami Beach).

But I digress.

Anyway, I had a chance to work with several models and the property offered a smorgasbord of shooting locations. First I was doing straight flamour on an outside staircase.

<CENTER></CENTER>

Next I moved inside and shot a little Italian style editorial fashion. For this shot I had the model on a padded low bench with a very large mirror behind her angled back so it reflected the dark wood roof. She was lit from the side by diffused sunlight and then I fired a strobe straight up into the ceiling which resulted in some highlights in the mirror that matched colors in the dress the model was wearing.

<CENTER></CENTER>

Then, I went back to shoot around the inside stairs which went from the grand foyer to the upstairs bedrooms. Again, mixed light from the window above, a strobe with a softbox coming in from camera right, and finally a little fill from a shoe mounted flash dialed way back.

<CENTER></CENTER>

The pool outside offered some real opportunities with a deep blue bottom and a lighter blue/green oval located further up. The front light is provided by a strobe with a softbox located directly behind me. Note the beautiful (and erotic) little squiggly lines around the model. Glashion, when it's done right, can be very kinky.

<CENTER></CENTER>

As the sun was going down I shot this out on a dock using a strobe to lift the model away from the darkening sky. The model (Sophia Murin) was a real trooper, it's cold, she's got this net top on and nothing else with a crew handling the light and reflectors standing around. I'm shooting and chimping to get the right balance of strobe and sky, she's pulling the top down to cover the appropriate parts while moving and playing with her hair. She's freezing, I'm yelling ("do this, no, this, no, your OTHER right leg!" I get pretty intense when I know the shot can be special), and everyone else is taking bets on whether I can get back up (I'm laying down, the over under on how many times I can lay down and get back up is five).

<CENTER></CENTER>

The last shot was down in the master bedroom with three strobes and an on camera flash. Very warm, I'm balancing the light color against the room and the outfit (which really doesn't work, but looks great on Marinette. Of course, an old rag would look great on Marinette!).

<CENTER></CENTER>

All together, a wonderful day.

John
