Swimwear Portraits – Kristy Lee @ Point Pelee

Swimwear portraits at Point Pelee National Park with model Kristy Lee

Swimwear portraits.. spring, summer or fall my beach kit is simple. When shooting swimwear and thinking lenses, the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS is my go-to for beach/location portraits. The compression at 200mm is absolutely amazing as is the bokeh at f/2.8. It should be interesting to see what the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 ART can do in 2017 when it gets warm enough to be on the beach and not turn into a human icicle.

As a backup to natural light, I typically bring an Alien Bees B1600 and the Alien Bees 22″ standard white beauty dish. I typically teeter back and forth between natural light and studio light to give the model/client more options. 

The gallery below is a set of favorites from our shoot with Kristy at Point Pelee.  I plan to visit this park a lot this year as in 2017 is Canada’s 150th birthday and I have my 2017 National Parks pass and plan to make good use of it! 🙂

Thanks to Kristy Lee! You rocked it! <3
