    Fiancee and myself were scouting at a beach location for an engagement session next Monday at sunrise. Just some test shots we took with a tripod. We used the D300's interval timer feature so that we don't have to run around setting up the camera.

    C&C are welcome... and no face was deliberate on these pics...

    original.

    It seems that you have found a nice spot. These are great.
     
  4. WOW, background is perfect!

    The silhouette is just outstanding, I really like it.

    My only nit-pik about the first two would be the shadow on the faces, maybe adding an additional flash for would help.

    Thanks a lot for the comments... yeah I think the light is a bit harsh too. I am already bouncing my SB800 off an umbrella off a light stand... maybe I will bring another light/stand/umbrella on the day.

    The light was with an off camera SB800 shot at a reflective umbrella. I used the Tokina 11-16/2.8 for that shot. It's really my first time trying this kind of off camera lighting.
     
  12. You should get a lot of customers waking up very early if they see these shots!
