Seashore Bikini Photograph Shoot Behind the Scenes, Commentary and Walkthrough – photographer tutorial

Notes on things to do:
For the model:

be ready prior to the beach front – hair and makeup

loose clothing prior to the shoot so as not to depart strains


warm towel/gown among sets

have her follow her poses prior to the shoot. Have an plan of the variety of photos you want to develop


know the tide and weather at your shoot area
know what time sunset is

know the area, pre-scout at related instances and tides to know what to assume on shoot working day

working with the mother nature, so be geared up for the unanticipated

flip flops – no sneakers
swim shorts
acquire your phone out of your pocket,
be ready to get as wet, or wetter then the model
will not be fearful to get wet to get the shot, but head your digicam – continue to keep it dry at all fees
deliver towels and sunscreen for every person

commence with close lens
to develop rapport

at the time she will get dirty, difficult to get her un dirty

have at the very least 2 assistants
they will get wet as well, so have them gown appropriately

have at the very least two 5 in one reflectors

Go with the move, will not get pressured or you will make the model pressured

deliver a thing to perform songs

Have just one of your assistants continue to keep an eye on your baggage if you are in a ‘shady’ area

have exciting

  1. Great video. Audio wasn’t too great, but thanks for sharing! Glad to know I’ve done a lot of those things in the video on my shoots. Good to know I’ve been doing it right 😉 Do you have a link to follow your model? Or was she just a pretty friend?

    I like your tutorials a lot, but that one in particular… for many reasons ; )

    the model is beautiful. your exposures and color temp is nice. half the poses are a little cheezy though and I'm not sure why you're covering up her bosom when her work portfolio should show off her assets.

    hope i could work in it too… 🙂

  5. Theresa G. says:

    thnks for sharing the tricks… 🙂

  6. Awesome info, thanks for the pointers on doing this kind of photography. It is always hard to go up against the unknown weather when you schedule a shoot like this. The ipod idea is a GREAT idea!

  7. Not for this shoot. I will in a studio, or location where I don't need to worry about salt water. This day, I just used reflectors because I don't need to worry if they get wet 🙂

  8. would wireless speedlites with softboxes held by your crew been another option

  9. How do you find your models?

    awesome job dude you should get a a99 I have one. your photos will look even better.

  12. glockatory says:

    Great job man, as usual, much appreciate your videos.

  13. Thanks!
    Yeah, you are right, using assistants with 5 in 1 is very liberating; the group is very mobile, and the lighting can be adjusted instantaneously… And as long as your assistants are not afraid to get wet, you can place reflector light sources in places where a flash would not be safe.

    It was a very fun shoot 🙂

    Photos look really good dude! Useing a couple of assistants with 5 in 1's looks really liberating and spontaneous as you experiment with different shots quickly and lots of laughs along the way too! Your video tips and narration great!

  15. Hi; The model is a personal friend of mine. She needed a beach bikini photo to enter in to a 'tanning' related competition, so she called me up last week asking to do this type of shoot. She needed the photo right away; that's why we are in on the beach in the middle of winter 🙂

    The photos turned out great, so we may find other ways to use them.

    Did you have a particular goal in mind with this shoot, as in types of shots, framing for magazine copy etc.? Or was it just a case of a stunning model agreed to do it for you?? Was it a commercial shoot essentially I guess…

  17. We were on the beach about 1 hour, 30 minutes. The sky was clear, so we were not going to get a spectacular sunset, and although it looks warm, was quite chilli, so we left before the sun went down.

  18. Jim C. says:

    Helpful video. Thanks.
    How long did the shoot take?

  19. Thank you! Yeah, the model was stunningly beautiful! 🙂
