Back in December last year I replied to an add on FB for a Yoga instructor looking for some updated images in return for a yoga session and massage. I thought this sounded pretty good so when Eliza Ballard from Ballard Wellbeing said she would be happy to work with me I was super keen. Together we decided on a sunrise shoot down at local Petrel Cove on a day in early January.
The day came and it was going to be a scorcher so I was looking forward to an early start down at the beach. My husband volunteered to be my lighting assistant for the shoot and came with me to pick up Eliza from her place. We were so fortunate to have perfect conditions and a gorgeous sunrise as a backdrop to this shoot and we all had an amazing time. Eliza showed off her Yoga skills in her stylish surf-yoga pants from Okiino as I snapped away, trying to make the most of the beautiful colours in the sky.
I shot with my Nikon D750 and either the sigma 24-70mm 2.8 or 70-200mm 2.8 and most of the images were lit with the Jinbei Discovery 600 with a reflective softbox. This was triggered with the Phottix Odin.
