Next on the list is the character portrait. Still sticking with the incongruous theme, I decided a man in a business suit in the middle of a pool was just the ticket. I thought Nic, the nautical model with the nacarat beard, was perfect for the job, and indeed he pulled it off nicely. Owner of Milman Productions, a video production company based in Brisbane, it was nice of him to volunteer to spend some of his time on the other side of the lens.
The strobes I brought along couldn’t compete with the sun, the max sync speed of the D600 1/200th sec wasnt fast enough to cut out the midday rays. All the light was ambient and expertly reflected by my patient friends Mauricio and Keenan.
Think I’ll submit the first one, but not certain. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Big thanks to all three of you.
