This was the first time that I had ever been to the Bath Club in Miami Florida any type of Engagement photos. In all honesty I don’t think that this is the ideal location for a photo shoot. The reason is because there is not an awful lot of different options at this property. It’s a very small space. However I still was able to make this session work for my clients who really wanted to go here for their engagement session in Miami. Taking a look at this shot, you can see that I went for a very intimate, sexy, high contrast type of shot. Again, I wanted to go for a little something that was more in line with a "movie" then a static photograph.
All of this comes down to the lighting, and the pose. The lighting was one light off camera right in the rear, and this was the only thing used. I had went around the room and closed all the doors, and windows to ensure I had everything as dark as possible. I wanted to build the mood up as much as I could, and then I posed them in this way to take advantage of the unique sliding door. I almost wanted it to appear as if she was walking by, and happen to run into her man.. they looked and no one was around, and they started to "fool around".
