A fantastic Mermaid Shootout during WPPI weekend in association with Interfit Photographic.

One last post on the Mermaid shootout. I love this one because the sky opened up a bit and the pose is just so perfect to advertise the sign of the location.
Canon 17-35mm L series at 24mm
Why these settings? I wanted the background to come out and not over expose.... and as you can see it was a dull cloudy yet bright background. So I closed down on the ISO and shutter and pumped up the light output to match the background as much as possible.
2 Interfit S1 strobes
•Key light is the S1 with foldable Beauty dish w/ diffusion.
•Fill light is the S1 with foldable Octabox w/ diffusion
Here's the original
Here's the original. It was a little hard to get our model Gabriella into the positions because she could not stand in the tail. I literally picked her up and moved her into the positions. Thank goodness models are light. There was a lot of laughing at my tossing her around......
A reminder about the ease of this set-up with the portable S1's that have a build in battery pack and need no external power. And if you have not checked out Interfit's foldable soft-boxes, your life will change forever shooting on location with these easy to set-up modifiers.
