Thread: Best timing for Beach Shoots

    Default Best timing for Beach Shoots

    hey there

    I'm planning to do a bikini shoot soon and was concern about the timing and the lighting.
    from what I think, i think that the timing from 4 30 to 6 30 is ideal .

    correct me if im wrong, but the afternoon sun and late morning sun lighting is quiet harsh on the skin tone.

    do u guys have any recommendations on timings ?

    i wanna get a soft natural look without using flash or studio lightings.

    thanks

    You can try shooting near sunrise or sunset as the light creates more shadows and makes the subject less boring.

    just bring along 1 or 2 reflectors and avoid the noon sun unless u can set up a scrim.
