I had the pleasure to shoot with Kehau, @kemeow on IG, a beautiful young lady with some amazing inked body art!!! She was great to work with, even though the trail was muddy & the stream's water was brown & raging, due to the recent heavy rains we've had in the past couple of days prior, no complaints.
I kept my lighting to a minimal to help accentuate her beautiful lines & curves. Playing with the highlights & shadows, the MoLight 30" Beauty Dish with the single outer defusion panel & the Godox AD200 did its job to sculpt Kehau's lines & curves.
Kehau was a trooper, I knew she was cold but didn't complain. My assistant Reid who was in thigh deep of raging water as well as myself. Dave was closer to the shoreline with the 2nd AD200 as a backlight & ready with the smoke in a can. Unfortunately, the winds were blowing a little bit too hard & the smoke didn't work out as I planned.
As we packed up, Kehau & myself were talking about coming back when the water is calmer. I have this shot stuck in my head, & she has everything I need to get that image! Did I mention that I loved her tattoos!!!
Aloha a hui hou my friends!
