BUNMAHON BEACH PORTRAITS

I did a quick 5 minute shoot on the beach with the couple whose wedding I'm next doing. I'm lucky to live near such a fabulous beach as Bunmahon. With tide out and half decent weather its a fabulous place to go, wet sand reflecting light, marram grass, cliffs, sea…everything

Most of the shots are natural light except the ones with referenced to Elinchrom Ranger, which I'm delighted to say is on its way back to me from the repair shop in London. Running repairs is one of the expensive sides to running a photographic business, things happen when running around like an idiot.

Usually I don't use studio lighting on the beach but if the sun is too strong I can use them to fill in and in some cases to overpower the sun and create a dramatic sky, I use lighting techniques rather then photoshop. I will do a post on some of my techniques over the summer.
