Michelle is a part-time model from Toronto and was in Bermuda for a week in July, visiting a friend. She thought a beach shoot would be a nice way to end her vacation and found Maria through some Instagram searches. Unfortunately, the day before the shoot Maria became sick and had to cancel, but thankfully Riley was able to step in and assist with the Make-up.
Concept wise, it was a pretty straight forward sexy beach shoot using swimsuits that Michelle had brought with her.

Camera: 5D Mk iii
Lens: 70-200 F2.8 IS
Lighting: Einstein 640 with Beauty Dish
Filters: 2 Stop ND and 1 Stop CP
The first set of images lent themselves more to fashion style than sexy bikini, so I added a couple of filters to them to give them more of a magazine feel. The remaining sets were left more natural

which seems to happen every time there's a model in the ocean.
