This fitness session was so fun with this couple. This was actually a "for fun" session for us. That really never happens. We never have the time, but this ended up working out great with our schedules, as well as the models! Yes, we did call in specific people for this session. Luckily, we knew this gym very well and best time of day to get the effect we needed. We did have the models test out and use some of the equipment and get action shots for them to use for their portfolios.
Day of the shoot, we really had to keep our fingers crossed that it would stay sunny. The sun was out, but not casting enough light that we needed. So, we put a light outside of that window behind the fitness models. We put it to the highest power and that was exactly what we needed. I was outside doing the lighting and Neal and I were communicating through cell phone if adjustments needed to be made. We pumped in some fog from our fog machine to really get those lights rays to show. I love how dark everything is, but you can still see so many details. You can see some of the gym equipment and body definition in both models.
This was exactly the look and style we wanted to achieve. It really helped to have two people who knew how to pose and hold the posing while we got everything right in camera!
