Sarah and Edward : Watching the Sunset on the Beach 087/365 [Explored]

Yesterday night I got a new idea. I'm gonna make some kind of a small story, and I'll upload a new photograph part of this story as my daily picture from time to time.

For this first picture, let me introduce you the main characters : Sarah and Edward.

This will actually be the last picture in the story, where they are on the beach, peacefully watching the sunset.

In the next pictures, I'll go back in time and present you their adventures and how they arrived here!

Hope you like the idea. Don't hesitate to tell me if you have any suggestions.


Next picture of the story is here.


I am really glad if you comment, say what you like, what you don't like.

But please, no big graphics and self-promotion in the comments. It is really unpleasant for everyone.


Setup shot HERE. Notice this is a three lights setup! And I didn't turn it into B&W as the color gels are very important for this shot.


Strobist info : Cactus V4 as triggers.

1 Canon 430EX; full CTB; in shoot-thru umbrella @ 1/16th, on the left, shooting at the white background wall.

1 LP160, full CTO+DIY grided snoot @ 1/4th behind and above subjects, on the left, as backlighting/shadows, pointed at them.

1 LP160, 1/2 CTO into convertible reflective umbrella @ 1/4th, above in front of subjects and on the right, as key lighting.


Note : The orange color in the upper left corner and the different blue were added in post. On the SOOC picture, the background is completely blue.
