Unfortunately, the client needed the photos should focus on the outfit only, no need for much facial expression and, the model, despite a perfect figure body, she could only do cold face, that is very suitable for fashion shoot but not for this shoot.
Anyway, everything was set from the client and I was happy with the location they've chosen, California WOW, the best fitness center in Vietnam (as I've known).
So it's about time for the shoot. As usual, I use my small flashes for on-location shoots, this time I've used 2 flashed, 1 Canon 580EX shoot thru translucent umbrella for key light and 1 'nude' Nikon SB26 for back light, all wireless triggered.
Except the shot with the bikes, most of the rest I shot about 1 stop underexposed for the ambient so that I can focus the light on the model to make her pop out from the background.
Here are those shots:
Model: Thái Hà
Outfit: Sloggy Sporty
Location: WOW California
I was quite happy with them though. These shot was published on December 2009.
