I know of about four places to get a really nice Miami Skyline Engagement Photos, and this is one of them. Generally we do this shot at nighttime, and it really pops. But, today we wanted to give it a try during the day.
The Wind was beyond annoying. It was WINDY AS HELL.
30mph+ So, we had to be very creative on how this was all going to come together. I had to be creative, and I decided to use the wind to help me make a nice, sexy shot of them. Can you see where I am going with this? LOL.
Since the wind was blowing west, I faced my clients in a way that the wind would take her skirt and blow it to the side. This showed more leg and that's always a good thing.
Lighting here is only one light. I could not use two because of the wind. (it would have blown over) So, I have my assistant holding the main light camera right, and we are powered up to just over the ambient levels about +1. You will notice a dark gradient at the bottom of the frame. This was because I was shooting at 1/320 with a non HS head. I did this to darken down the ground a bit, and bring more attention to their faces.
Be sure to check out all the shots from this session here.
