This was shot quite late in the day at about 7:45pm and we were waiting for the sunset to start to lower so we could take advantage of the beautiful colors.
Normally I shoot with an assistant but on this occasion it was just the two of us.
About 3 frames after this shot, a breeze caught my studio light and knocked it into the ocean! As I picked it up out of the water, there was a huge flow of sandy ocean water spilling out of the strobe vents.
Needless to say, the shoot was over.
I left the light to dry out for 2 days and you would not believe it! The sucker still worked and hasn't missed a flash to this day!!
Moral of the story: Don't give the assistant the day off!!
This was shot with the strobe and a 300mm beauty dish on the right side. Light was adjusted high and angled down. Lens had a ND4 filter to darken the background.
