Worked on a Portfolio shoot, got to shoot Emilio this past Sunday, he’s a Personal Trainer located in Boca Raton, West Palm Beach, Florida. We started the shoot at Extreme Fitness, a gym where Emilio trains his clientele during the week. Light wasn’t as optimal as I’d like it to be, I used my SIGMA 85mm and shot at F/2.0 and higher ISO. Even with that, I wish I used flash for some of the shots. The ones that I did like and used, looked great in Black and White.
Emilio is in awesome shape, we had him using all the gym equipment. Moving from one station to another, we worked on getting the perfect shot. Fitness shoots are a different beast, a lot of holding position through the movements. Unique experience and one I think I’ll work on more in the future.
After our gym shoot, we shot out to downtown Delray Beach for a couple of lifestyle pictures. Perfect cloudy day, it was close to Golden Hour and the light was close to perfect. Before we got there, found a great location to take a couple pics next to boat docks.
More of a mini shoot than a full fledged one, we’re planning on more in the near future. Great new experience, looking forward to the next one.
