Weekend B&W Beach Client Pictorial

Shot an assignment for a client this past weekend; his 60th. Birthday Gala, beginning with a trip to Paradise Beach Philippines with friends & Family, some of whom flew in from Sweden to celebrate with Anders (pictured) a rock 'n roll Blueshound & Chef who now owns a popular bar & restaurant here.

Before I started shooting, I knew I wanted to do black & white documentary style images, and I wanted to cover his event as if it were to be published in magazines like Rolling Stone or Vanity Fair, etc. as if Anders really was a famous VIP on vacation.

Camera & lens: E3 + 14-54mm mk1 with an FL20 flash for fill at 1/250sec, underexposed by a stop or so, so I could get interesting the proper sun-baked skin tones with the b&w red/orange conversion sliders in Lr.

Shot on the boat, returning from the beach:
