I am just curious as to other shooters preferred methods of shooting glamour on the beach. I see the east coast (Florida) shooters use a
lot of natural light, and I must admit most of their work is wonderful. Kudos, to the McFarlands and the many others of the east coast.
Now on the West Coast we have the sun to our backs for evening shoots. Which can make for wonderful sunset shots, but requires the need of an additional light source be it a reflector or fill flash.
In my experience I have found reflectors don't give me enough additional light to have an acceptable light ratio between subject and background to maintain a saturated background.
So the alternative would be fill flash... however my S1, SB-28DX and any of my lenses don't seem to work together.
Does anyone have a suggestion as to how you go about properly illuminating your subject but maintain, that nice golden saturated sunset?
