we're probably gonna have to stand up and bounce the light from a top down on to her which is going to be very interesting light pattern plant your booty on this four dresses in 45 minutes that's chump change this is going to go up on YouTube real quick there's like so much spunk in you I love it I know Wow we may even jump up onto this clip up here or go shoot either out or coming back in this way we can rain in the background first and then around the cove on that side of the ocean in the background with the two balls kind of high fashion styles perfect perfect purple so you're this is texture city textures for my youtube audience is a famous place that's where I did my beach shoot where we had the crashing waves right there I didn't even know I was coming here Darrell just she just knows her spots alright so for my crew in this photographers in general we need to get all the bags on this side so this is clear so we don't have any any of our crap in the shots looking sexy Anthony thank you just touch it you are looking six well thank you thank you're up he turned on why do you open report it when I say I glad this stuff gets cut though I'm not cutting that yeah I'm not

dress up come back this way guys put the reflector on that we're going to bounce some light into this mofo it's going to be interesting endeavour probably have to stand on top and drop the light find this to stand right there and drop the light down we're going to put the reflector on that so we're looking at lighting scenarios here I really want to get her down deeper into the where the Sun is hitting because of the light on the rocks and the the light hitting the rocks turns it green which is stunning so that's really what we're going for in this shot here I could flash it but it's not going to be as dynamic as if we're able to get it on there so we have a huge reflector a bytes cream up top we're putting the reflective surface on it it's going to be an interesting shot because we're probably gonna have to stand up and bounce the light from a top down onto her which is going to be very interesting light pattern it should be pretty amazing if we can get the angle of it which I think we can but that's why big reflectors are fantastic or big diffusers are fantastic because is there their pain to handle but you can do a lot more of them from a performance standpoint yeah you got to I got to see how that lights going to hit so flip it around towards the Sun all right yeah honja definitely have to get on that side yay that's my gypsy oh okay now it not it's not she's not in

    I wish people understood that it takes time to work with a given location. "Not enough light, problem solve." Loved that. Unfortunately, you only have a short period to problem solve at magic hour. I once did a shoot where they kept asking why it took so long. I had asked them to bring people who could carry reflectors, they brought one relative who could barely walk. Whenever I tried to take a photo with a reflector up, they'd tell him to get out of the shot, and he'd move, and I'd have to start all over. Since it was only day 2 for me of a 4 day shoot (the first day I got familiar with light and weather reports), I took it in stride. I sat them down later, told them to either shut up or don't show up, and they opted to leave me to the shoot with no help. I had to improvise the reflectors but I got way better shots.

    I will volunteer to model for you. I am similar to her except I am a male, not good looking, old and can't pose. I am sexy and I know it and I workout.

    Jason, I'm no prude, but I watch a ton of your videos and cringe when you say some of the things you say because I don't sensor what I watch in front of my kiddos. "Blows" "Sucks" and "MoFo" are so unnecessary. You're awesome all except for that stuff. Thanks for considering. If you don't stop, I still will watch of course, but pretty please???

    Hi Jason, this is Australia calling, with the Flashpoint were you shooting manual at half power and was it on HSS, or were you using TTL. Also can you let me know what your camera settings are, ISO, SS and Apature and are you shooting in Manual mode? These images are awesome, I love watching your videos,  as I learn heaps from them please keep them coming thank you 🙂
