All the team is ready, we are waiting for the model on the shoot, Dany is finishing the Aqua Look on her backstage. This year, the shooting of Aqua Summer is happening at Dany’s place, outdoor in the garden near the pool.

Monday morning, 7:30 am. I am in the starting block.

All the team is ready, we are waiting for the model on the shoot, Dany is finishing the Aqua Look on her backstage. This year, the shooting of Aqua Summer is happening at Dany’s place, outdoor in the garden near the pool.

It’s the first time I use outdoor’s light in a shooting. It is a real challenge for me, because we don’t have a steady light like in studio and I need to check the results on a screen inside the house and after adjust & reshoot outside.

The light is strong and changes all the time.

 

8:08 am – 11:15 am. Hide-and-seek with the sun.

Outdoor, capturing lights and colors is really fastidious; I adjust my camera all the time to get the right angle and the right light. The model is in the pool, laid down on the air bed, she is also struggling to keep her eyes opened, but she keeps smiling anyway.

The Sun is dazzling but I have to capture each detail:  the makeover, light reflection in the water, emotions to get a unique picture. 

I continue shooting afternoon, playing hide-and-seek with the sun, changing position each half hour.

 

3 pm. Afternoon light.

The sun is very high. The model is going back on the air bed, changing poses. For the moment, any picture is magic and unique enough, we have to keep going.

I adjust my camera, and then in the lens, the visual is perfect, such as an actress the model is having that look, and I’m stunned.

It’s just perfect. I shoot like crazy to catch this magical moment.

Finally I think we got it!
