Lydia Strikes Again!

Easy Breezy Beachy Looks from Central Texas.Cestaro Fashion Photography

www.greggcestaro.com  Currently catching up on posts from the summer including these from the July 4th weekend here in Austin Texas. Kind of a last minute let’s go shoot  Cestaro Fashion Photography (3)something cool collaboration with self styled Lydia and testing my new and latest Pentax K5II. These were done on Cestaro Fashion Photography (2)Lake Travis (dammed up Colorado River) which is drying up and revealing new spits of land previously underwater.  We started in the late afternoon on the north side of the cliffs and sand bar so as to have a overall back-lit scene in the bright sun and used reflectors and overexposure for initial lighting. I had a portable softbox studio light too, but wasn’t happy with the “typical” looks I was getting with it.  Cross and bleach post process rounded out the image. It is real easy to shoot Lydia. Once the camera settings and shooting style are set, all you really have to do is press the button as she does her thing. Shipwrecked castaway and coming out of the water in the nicely woven Cestaro Fashion Photography (4)metallic skirt and woven fabric top series was my favorite Ad worthy scene. Likewise, was the black bikini with star spangled wrap images which are very cool and fun editorials, highlighting her statuesque figure and fun attitude. I tried to make sure the background hills and houses were not in scene or at least looked like distant land or islands across a large bay or lagoon. The shoot ended with grabbing fun editorials getting an cold Icee near the beach in her red nautical tube top and red hot shorts. There were so many too choose from but we got a pretty good final selection. The contact sheet below shows the overall faves of the day. I really wish I was more a shooter when I grew up in Florida back in the day!Cestaro Fashion Photography (5)
