OREGON COAST FANTASY SHOOT

I visited the Oregon coast in late July accompanied by two models for a "Fantasy" shoot.  Both models were dressed in medieval attire.  With a story in mind, my goal was to shoot the scenes and later process the images to complete my vision.  I shot the models during sunset hours for the warm rim lighting, and used a strobe fitted with a small grid for more contrast creating a cinematic effect.  Using a large strobe would have been problematic due to the windy conditions.  For the "dragon" image, I asked the models to look above the Oregon seastack where I planned to place the dragon.  The dragon was created using a toy model dragon, a lizard photographed in my front yard, a bat wing from stock photos, and my cat's eye.  The landscape scene is a combination of the original image and images from my Iceland trip last March.
