Julia and Yuriy : Rialto Beach

13 Comments

Julia and Yuriy + Rialto Beach + foggy goodness = awesome. It’s just simple math really. These two are ridiculously talented creatives and it was so much fun to collaborate with them, and camp out on the beach afterwards!  Shooting, camping, exploring, and creating rad things. Hells yes!

I included a little tip for shooting in foggy/overcast conditions and a set of frames shot on my iPhone down at the bottom. Enjoy!

Most of you may have seen by now that I added a mobile section to my portfolio! Eventually I’ll be doing some all mobile blog posts but for now, I wanted to add a couple here from the shoot. If you haven’t yet, feel free to come join me on my Instagram!

tip:

Shooting in overcast and foggy conditions can be a huge relief at times but it also ends up being a bit trickier because it can be harder to figure out which light is good and which is bad until you bring the shoot in to edit. When I shoot in conditions like this I actually tend to shoot front lit a bit more than usual because that keeps the muddy shadows away from their skin and keeps the background a bit darker to show off the mood of the fog. Since the difference between front light, side light, and back light is so subtle in light like this, an easy trick is to hold your hand out in front of you and squint at it until it turns into a blurred blob. From there, just spin around and you'll be able to see how the light falls on it a bit easier. Also, you won't look like a fool at all when you do that (probably not true).

    Hi Ben! I love the cool, light and airy light that you have here in these photos. I always seem to struggle with white BALANCED exposure on my photos and getting such clean shots as these. Any tips on setting your camera’s settings up for a good, clean, airy shot or is it mostly in post processing for you? THanks! P.S. What presets did you use on these?

    • Thanks so much! I’d actually suggest practicing lighting, that’s what will help you with that clean airy feel. I have a free lighting class at Lighting.BenSasso.com. Hope that helps!
