DalyDose of…Santa Monica Beach Shoot

View Santa Monica Beach Shoot

5:00 am.  For those of you who have never been awake at that time, it is also known as 5:00, in the morning and sometimes called “the crack of dawn”.  How do I let my roommate talk me into such things??

The alarm goes off – annoyed.
I get my stuff together in a rush of time – stressed.
I labor down the stairs to wait – tired.

I don’t expect any sympathy from anyone.  I mean, we were headed to the Santa Monica to shoot fun, sexy pictures of these girls, on the beach.

PROBLEM!!!! There was no sun at sunrise or I imagine most of the day.  Was it “partly cloudy” or just a “marine layer”?  I don’t know, but I do know it wasn’t a picturesque scene.  It’s OK though, I’m a ‘glass is half full’ kinda guy.  This cloud cover was going to provide soft light for headshots and we’ll see what we can do with the beach/swimsuit shots.

I used a 50mm lens.  There are more expensive options, but this one actually does well in low light and does really well for headshot.  My roommate loaded up a big ‘ole lens and we both shot both girls.

The shoot went better than I thought it would and I think the girls will have some shots to choose from.

After a couple of hours of swapping girls and taking pictures of the experience with my roommate, we all went to Denny’s and had breakfast.  (That’s what we call a marketable tagline for an otherwise ordinary event)
