About the Image

This fashion image was shot in Zingst, Germany on the Baltic Sea (Ostsee in German.) It is not quite the Northernmost part of Germany... but it is close. I set up at a spot where the beach curves and had a row of pilings, used to combat beach erosion. I asked Annabell to run and caught her mid stride. Annabell is one of my all time favorite models, just a fabulous mover, great to work with and into modeling.

When shooting for hat clients, it is important that you hold detail in the dark hats. It should not be a dark brown or black blob. This is difficult when wanting to have a high contrast and interesting image with a black hat as we had in this image.

This is what the sun was doing at the time.
