Bottle Top Bikini: Part 3 - Introducing Sherall

This is the 3rd in the series of bottle top bikinis designed by James Lee.  When James asked me which models I wanted to use for these shoots Sherall was the first name I gave him.  Actually, I didn't know her name, but I had seen her several times at the Evolution rehearsals and she was at the top of my list of new faces I wanted to shoot.   When you see these pics I'm sure you will understand why.  She is one of the most beautiful models I've had the privilege to shoot.  I believe the bottle caps used in this swimsuit are from Millar.


Model: Sherall
MUA: Kyla Tear (MAC)
Designer: James Lee

First of all a big thanks to Dan and Heather Soares for letting us have the use of their pool on a Sunday afternoon.

Technical Stuff
This was shot in mid afternoon with the sun coming from behind the model and off to the right.  I used a circular polariser which I think effects the exposure by 1 stop.  I started shooting with the 5D mk iii and due to the current inability of the pocket wizards to use hyper sync I kept the shutter speed at 1/160 sec which at ISO 100 was giving an ambient reading of about F5.6-F8.   I shot at the ambient exposure and used 2 strobes for fill light.  I had wanted to use the 64" PLM as the light source but as it was a little windy and I didnt have a lighting assistant to hold it I settled for the Beauty Dish on one strobe and the standard reflector on the other.   Having 2 strobes helped keep the recycle times down.

Here are the pics.
