This family of four have been living here in the US for a few years. When the grandparents came over from Europe for a visit, it seemed the ideal time to capture a multi-generational family portrait! We headed out to the beach right down the street from their house, and captured a mix of ‘formal’ portraits and candid, having-fun shots. And yes it was this much fun!
Technical info below.
Shot with two cameras:
Bronica ETR-s with 75mm f/2.8 lens
Nikon F5 with 50mm f/1.4 lens
Film was New Kodak Portra 400 throughout.
Seated portrait was lit with a Metz Mecablitz 60 on camera right as main light, with an SB-28 in a LumiQuest Softbox III modifier as fill. No modifier on the Metz that day as it was very windy. So I kept the ambient pretty high, thus keeping unwanted shadows to a minimum. No flash on the candid shots.
