2015 Swimsuit Series - #1 Sophie Adams

Firetog, Bermuda, Photographer, Photography, Swimsuit, Swimwear, Bikini, Fashion, Mike Jones, Sophie Adams,  This was my first swimsuit shoot of 2015 and what better way to start than with Sophie Adams.  Sophie has been in big demand since the start of this year and is the face of the 2015 Bermuda Fashion Festival, has been modeling for Nova Swimwear and also Designs by Alshante, to name a few.  Luckily for me one of my vacation (staycation) days fell on a day that Sophie was free to shoot.   




The day of the shoot was one of those sunny / cloudy days, where the light is changing all the time.  As I shoot in manual mode, its a real pain in the butt.  The question is do you go ahead and change all your settings or wait for the cloud to pass over.  I generally prefer to wait for the cloud to pass and stick with my sunny settings, but if its a big cloud then I'll make the change.  As a result there was a lot of sitting/lying around waiting for the right light.  This resulted in a shoot that should have taken 2 hours, taking twice that length of time.

If you follow my blog on a regular basis you will have noticed that I was really active in the beginning of May and then on a hiatus since then.  I had to cancel a couple of shoots around the Bermuda Day weekend due to a pulled back muscle.  Once I was well enough to shoot, I did this shoot with Sophie, but was then unable to devote much time to editing, due to a busy couple of weeks at work.  I've also had to cancel a couple of shoots due to inclement weather over the last couple of weeks.  Hopefully the remainder of June will be a little more active.
