Model Xtine adding some color to the apocalyptic environment of the Salton Sea. Our photo shoot at Bombay Beach.
For my photographer friends; my Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting. So here was the problem… I really wanted to use this framing of the posts with the Salton Sea directly behind her. But I also had really intense Sun directly behind her.
So a white Broncolor beauty dish to my left at about a 45 degree angle to her just outside the frame held by my assistant. Powered by a Broncolor 1200L Move pack. It was also very windy so any big light modifiers would have been a problem.
The camera was my Hasselblad H4D-40 with the Hasselblad HC 100mm f/2.2 lens.
Bombay Beach at the Salton Sea with model Xtine. Her first time around the Salton Sea, my assistant’s first time around the Salton Sea. Photographed with a Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting. Only the best!
Actually a partially overcast day so we had sun and then no sun. To my left 45 degrees to the model was my assistant holding a Broncolor white Beauty Dish, only one light powered by a Broncolor 1200L Move pack. He carried that in it’s shoulder case. Winds at Bombay Beach can be very significant, so that was a factor in my light modifier decision and to not try using a stand. By the way, Xtine the model here, is 6ft-1 in her bare feet.
A look at posing with model Xtine at Bombay Beach at the Salton Sea during our photo shoot just the other day. You might ask “Why is that boat there?”. Well, for the opera, of course!
A few moments of posing interlude with Kajira during our photo shoot. The photo shoot itself done with Broncolor lighting and a Hasselblad digital camera system. The video with a Fujifilm X-T1 camera.
For those colder Halloween nights of Trick Or Treat. A well designed windbreaker with hoodie. Another of my Halloween costume ideas from one of my photo shoots with Kajira. Lighting by Broncolor and a Hasselblad digital camera system. Only the best!
As we come up to Halloween, I thought I would show off some of my costume ideas. Here is one that is low cost and that can be customized to fit most everyone.
