About the image

This lifestyle image was shot just north of Miami, Florida at sunrise. Just about every project will have at least one "Issue"

Problems:
Color-wise, flat light, flat water, blah sky.

Solutions:
Make separate image layers for the sky, the water and the models, then selectively blend.

Model problem:
Stephanie had shot with me several times and was great to work with. The guy was a new model and was so stiff and uncomfortable I knew within a few minutes he was not going to work out. So I explained that I wanted to shoot over the shoulder of Stephanie to have him be the "Star" in those photos and I would then swap sides. So I ripped off 30-40 shots of him then moved to his side of the models so I could shoot Stephanie by shooting over the guy's shoulder. It worked.
