Today Simone and I went down to ‘The Tree’ an easy walk along the Lake Wanaka shoreline.
This place typically shows up in the album of every photographer who is lucky enough to visit this amazing place.
Simone is an amazing athlete who is incredibly focussed on training and competing in international ironman events.
She needed photos for her sponsorship proposal and I need to practise shooting under harsh midday full sun conditions using my 600W strobe.
I wanted to capture Simone running from the lake emphasizing the water droplets and the sponsors canvas which is the wetsuit.
The running shots I’m pretty happy with although the rear curtain sync effect I was going for was dumbed down a bit by the hard sunlight.
All in all I’m pretty pleased but I can do better with those running shots next time by shooting a bit more in the shade to give that strobe a chance.
