Day two of our shoot in Puerto Rico with Joli Robinson, we trek into the rain forest to find a waterfall. Quantum battery in my back pocket attached to my Speedlite, legs into the water up to my knees, I prayed that I didn’t trip into the water and shock myself. It was absolutely worth it watching the water soak through the white shirt. After surviving the hike, we made it across the entire island to one of the most amazing hotels I’ve ever had the pleasure of staying in, the Horned Dorset Primavera.
I even traveled with both my Alien Bees, which I had setup in the suite. The evening shoots were lit with the modeling lamps, which I usually prefer over a strong flash. When I book a hotel, I will make the most of it, from shooting in the evening for dark intimate lighting, to using the beautiful morning light. Our last shoot ended in the infinity pool, making sure it was in the shade for a beautiful surreal look.
