|Our project director took this shoot of me photographing our female model at Indian Cove, Joshua Tree National Park, CA.|
Shooting in our back yard: Project director Brian taking the photo, our male model posing, female model's boyfriend helping out holding a light reflector to fill in the shadows, and our female model. This was Saturday afternoon, and I had to take a break. I had been shooting for hours on Friday PM and Sat. AM using my 5D Mark II with the 70-200mm lens. The lens alone is about 4.5 lbs., and with the camera body it probably weighs in at over 6 lbs. In the desert heat, I finally had to call time out to rest my hands, wrist, arms and shoulders!!
Above is our project director taking a pic of our female model using his iPhone. The location is Coyote Dry Lake Bed. His legs are spread apart so he won't get his feet in the photos. I just happened to have my wide angle lens on and I love the way it exaggerates things out on the dry lake. So cool!! The shadows are great, too.
