Armed with a Tamron 24-70 & 70-200 2.8 Vc's I undertook this new challenge. I have always shy'd away from shooting against the sun. Would this be my Kryptonite or would I overcome it. I would have loved to carry a reflector and my Portable Beauty Dish but due to time constrains had to carry on with out em adding more to my light bending worries. Only ammo carried was just my trusty cheapo flash; courtesy of Yongnuo with no triggers so on camera if I would need it.
Even as I reached the normally quiet and empty open beach, I saw tons of families who came out to enjoy a (un)peaceful saturday. This was going to be a little more difficult than I thought. Even as Katrina (Our Model) arrived I could see she noticed the densely populated beach. This was not going to be easy. We decided to carry on with the shoot with everything working against us.
