About the image
This beauty image was shot in Bellagio, Italy on Lake Como close to sunset in a stiff wind. Almost all of Bellagio is a great location to shoot. There is a public walkway on Lake Como and along the walkway there are terraces built out into the lake with stairs leading to the water. I have the model on one of these.
THE GEAR: Canon camera set to 160 ISO and 1/320 second shutter speed using a Canon 85mm lens set to f2. THE LIGHT: Sunlight using a Sunbounce Pro Sunswatter set off to the left of the frame. The wind was blowing so hard it took 2 adults to hold the Sunswatter in place.
