I was recently in the Dominican Republic where I was giving a 7 day photography workshop and I brought my model down to the beach for some early morning shots one of the mornings just as the sun was coming up. We didn't do any hair or makeup. I just wanted to show off Natalia's natural beauty in this tropical paradise.
I thought I would experiment with a variety of lenses. Here I am using the SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH 120 mm TS f/5.6 Aspherical lens. Kind of gives it a cool focusing effect.
I was excited to shoot with the IQ250 by Phase One... what an awesome camera!! And I am in love with the Hensel Porty 1200L portable light with Chimera softbox that I used for these shots!
Here is a 30 sec movie that cinematographer Ian J. Young made in the Dominican Republic. Enjoy!
