Luxury Swimear with ZACOB SPORTIV


I recently had the pleasure of shooting the launch collection for Zacob Sportiv, an emerging swimwear label out of Melbourne inspired by sport. We had a gorgeous location on the day, a unique poolside at a home in St Kilda but the lighting conditions were a little tricky. With overcast weather for the entire day, we ended up having a really clean and smooth feeling to the images. With the poolside having white floors and white walls it was super helpful to fill in all the shadows effortlessly. 

I shot this on the Nikon D800 with 3 prime lenses, a 35mm f2, 50mm f1.4 and 85mm f2 and all shot with natural light (not even a reflector was used).
