Bottle Top Bikini: Part 2 - "Look a Super-Model"

This is the second of the bottle top swimsuit shoots, as designed by James Lee.   See previous post for more details about the swimsuits.
This shoot was with Malyssa and was shot in the water just off the causeway at the Blue Hole park end.  It was shot late evening.  As expected there was a lot of traffic crossing the causeway and hence a lot of horn tooting, yelling and a group of tourists who pulled their convoy of rental bikes to the side of the road and could be heard talking amongst themselves, "Look a super-model."  Needless to say Malyssa loved all the attention.  LOL.

As seems to be a trend recently with my shoots, this was shot waist deep in water, standing in 3 or 4 inches of slimy mud.   It was shot with the 5D mkiii and one Einstein and Beauty Dish.   Lens used 70-200 and 24-105.   The bottle caps used for this swimsuit are from Corona.
