A few weeks back I had a beach shoot set up with Natalie, which went maybe better than any other shoot I've had! Right by the beach we were going to shoot, there was a field of flowers just kinda on some empty land, so I suggested we do something there before we head over to the beach.
I set up my AlienBees AB800 with my weird no name (and very tank like) beauty dish, and got some shots with all 3 of my lenses.
This was with the 35mm f1.4 Sigma
This with my 50mm f1.4 Sigma ( I love my Sigmas, and I wish I had the 85mm also!)
And lastly, of course, the trusty ol' Canon 70-200mm f2.8 non-IS. If I could only have ONE lens for the rest of my life, it'd be this. I really need to test it back to back with a new Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS II, but there is something a little LESS perfect the non-IS lens I like. I dunno.
So we got some great shots there then went to the beach at Ponto in Carlsbad. I love shooting in Carlsbad, maybe its because its where I've lived all my life, but it just seems more kicked back here than even other places around here.
The beach is more of a rock quarry right now, but we didn't mind. Of course I had to get her up on the Lifeguard tower.
Then we moved to the jetty as the sun went down.
Natalie is always just amazing to shoot with, and when a model makes your job this easy it makes you so happy to be a photographer! Now I just need to go make 1000 more images that are this awesome!
