Hold Me Close
“Both, the girl and the guy, are models represented by local modeling agencies. They wanted to add to their portfolio some lifestyle images and they were aware of my couples work. We headed to Playalinda Beach – a beach on the north side of NASA near Titusville, Florida. This picture was from the start of the shoot – before the requested swimsuit photos that brought some serious attention to both of the models (a music video offer for her, a magazine cover from Europe for him).
The photo was taken with 560 ex II flash on camera to fill the shadows from the harsh Florida sun. I made sure that both faces are in the shadow and no sun is on their faces. Because of the wind, some serious hair removal from her face was needed.
The idea was to shoot commercial/lifestyle photos – sort of Bruce Weber-ish couple photography style. The couple have not met prior to the shoot though they were working well together.” - Martin Purmensky
