One of my favorite models, Mary, call me last week to say she moved into a brand new, multi-million dollar downtown condo ... and wanted to know if I'd shoot her around the pool area. I jumped at the opportunity. Unfortunately there was a 30 mph wind blowing, so I couldn't use any of my strobes (and my assistant was busy). Not to fear, I strapped on my trusty SB-800 and started shooting.
I thought about using a shallow DOF, but the skyline, clouds and pool area were beautiful ... so I decided to shoot at a higher aperture and bring in the city. What would you have done?
And finally, here's one that's been done before ... but it only took me three shots to get. Unfortunately, the background is too busy for my taste.
