After seeing some of Millie’s beach photos, the girls were excited to get out there and get a few of their own! We always have fun shooting at the beach, so we made it a date and crossed our fingers for good weather. On that day, the usual bright sun made things challenging…but it was the least of our concerns. Weather conditions had been perfect all week, but of course on our planned day…the chilly wind was blowing up a sandstorm! The girls were limited to facing one way which meant salt and sand facials. =/ We couldn’t use reflectors or umbrellas neither; I took out the reflector and it quickly flapped Sue in the face (sorry Sue!).
Click through to see the rest of the photos. I think they turned out great considering the wind and bare flash. Since we hadn’t used it in awhile we took out the D90 and the trusty 50mm f/1.8 lens (the perfect inexpensive portrait lens).
The wind and surf picked up as the day progressed. This was good and bad. Good because the high surf made for a great background. Bad because it started to get really chilly for the girls. Look closely and you’ll see plenty of goosebumps. Sand was also blown all over and got everywhere (yes, there too =/). However, the girls were still good sports. They didn’t mind getting wet and wild for us. Thanks girls!<3
Here is the BTS shot of our simple setup, look at Ty's fro! haha
