I had planned to do a swimsuit shoot today. First one for me this summer(turned out to be the only one). Well it turned out to be the most miserable day here, it rained non stop and the wind sounded like it was going to shake everything to pieces. I had the time cleared so I still elected to meet with my model. We were lucky enough that her parents house was available so we shot there. As usual I started with the 60×90 softbox and put her out on the deck. Shots were ok but nothing to write home about. I tried various versions of this and some indoor shots. Nothing was really working for the level i expected. Whilst she was getting ready I wandered around the house again, as i had done earlier that morning, but the light had now changed. One thing about overcast sky is the giant sofbox they can create. I found a beautiful window light and brought her up to it. Now in this image you will see 2 light sources, both are natural. The one that is light HER left is from a wide window about 2m from her. The second is behind me so about 6m in front of her. (Behind me which is a very large window) Give or take this makes about a stop or so difference between the 2. I metered for that main light (fyi my meter was reading 2/3 stop over). Shot using the 85mm(f1.8) @ f2, 1/160 at ISO 400. FX body.
