Sand Grains

I had to create 4 pictures for the Andalusia 2015 summer campaign #lomejordetodos.  For one of these 4 shots, I was inspired by Marbella’s beaches and I decided to do a photograph in one of them.

I used the broncolor Move 1200L for this photoshoot. I just used one head and the broncolor silver Umbrella 85cm.

First of all, I dag a hole in the sand where I would be later buried with the help of two assistants. Then, I adjusted the camera settings (Pentax k3 with Pentax 70mm F2.8 lenses) and composed the photograph by posing in front of the camera and looking to what I was doing, indicating with a pebble where I had to place my face next time. Then, after being buried, I used a mirror to see my upper half body and indicate them where I exactly wanted sand in my face.

After the photoshoot, I edited the selected picture with Lightroom and Photoshop.

The result you can see on the right.

And here you can watch a bit of the making of! :)
