    Great stuff as always Dave. You're very lucky having such an awesome model on hand :)

    The new modifier is good, the specular highlights look a little sharper than a regular softbox (not worse, just different). I'd love to get one myself. I felt like I was lacking a bit of power yesterday so would love a high efficiency modifier like that one.

    The work looks great :)

    So is this "maxilight" like a beauty dish or is it "just" a metal dish reflector ??? If it's "just" a dish then do you use anthing on it like a grid or a sheet of diffusion gel ??

    The reason I ask is that I have made extensive use of gridded dishes in studio for the last couple of years but never considered them on a beach location shot like this ... not that I do that kind of thing - I live in Melbourne :lol:

    Melbourne has awesome beaches. They face the perfect direction for sunsets, so no need to get up ridiculously early. Two of my favourites are Half Moon Bay at Black Rock, and Sorrento Back Beach (a bit of a drive to that one)

    Gee, that's drawing a really long bow. Back in the day I dreaded having to shoot on bayside beaches in Melbourne. No surf. Horrid grubby sand. IT was a nightmare. Plus, the lack of Melbourne 'beaches' resulted in a lack of beach culture and wardrobes for the girls.

    Just goers to show you can take the boy out of Bondi but you can't take Bondi out of the boy.

    Cheers,

    Black Rock is good with its wonderful sandstone cliffs and impressive views, but I favour the 5 mile stretch of beach from the Patterson River that goes by Carrum/Seaford/Frankston, as not only can you find a private spot most times but it has its natural dunes & scrub which are good to shoot in their own right (and out of the wind), and also allow easy costume changing, plus the nearest stretch is a 10 min walk from home ;)
