Emma - swimsuit

This was a tricky shot. I was perched on top of a boulder, holding a diffuser with my left hand, leaning out to do so, while shooting with my right hand (trying to keep 2.5kg of camera kit steady).

    Works well eh ? ;-)
    Thanks Kath, I was trying hard not to overbalance and end up falling on the poor lass (or worse, in the creek with my kit).

    Sounds like a tricky shot great result tho really sharp details but also some nice DOF.

    Done well here, especially to keep focus in those conditions at f2
  • EclipseAu said:
    Great Shot Dave. That Lens at f2 seems to have a decent DOF range. I'd be interested in your strobist info for this shot.

    Thanks Jason :)
    Aye, tweren't easy!
    Just on-camera fill flash for this one. Simple but it works well enough outside.

    congrats on the shot mate.. I'm glad you didn't fall over!!
    plus look at the pure goodness of the 85mm f1/2... WOWWWW! So creamy... so yummy....
    You've been doing a bit of model work lately mate.. Where abouts are you doing this? Through a club or something else?

    I'm glad I didn't fall over too ;-)
    Some of the model work is organised via the flickr strobist community, some at the BCG (Brisbane Camera Group) portrait days (I'm not a member, but sometimes toodle along), and this one was through the Australian Photography forum.
