Hello all, I have a potiential upcoming photo shoot with a long time friend of mine, and I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions or ideas for this shoot. We don't know if we'll head to the coast or somewhere else, but most likely the beach. Since I'll be shooting solo, and since I don't have any reflectors etc. I'll have to rely on my on camera SB-800. I'll most likely be shooting both color and b&w (I'm still in the dark ages with film, but it has always worked for me.) The main reason I'm asking for ideas is because of the location, it does pose some problems with lighitng. And also, she is on the tall side at 5' 11", and a voloptous red head. I've put in a couple of pics from the most likely location, where we went last year. Thanks in advanced.

Isaiah

I've seen people use one of those four pole shelters (with only two poles) to provide open shade, and also tape something on them to also be a reflector.

All the images below were shot outside using just a Nikon D100 and an old SB-80, so your SB-800 should work fine. If you can find or create some open shade - great! If you can't, then try to shoot late in the afternoon when the sun is lower in the sky.

This is probably obvious (and I don't want to insult your intelligence), but aside from the quality of light, the beach will play havoc with the camera's metering. A light meter and manual mode is almost a must on the beach.

Yeah, I hear ya, I'm primarily worried about harsh shadows, I do like the idea previously about doing it at sunset, not only do I not have to worry about the harsh shadows, but the warmth of the light is always a plus, the good ol' golden hour. Thanks.
