Oregon coast

Ever since I first saw a photo of the southern Oregon coast, I wanted to shoot there.

This image was shot close to sunset.  In order to overcome the strong backlight, I was shooting with a gold reflector and a woefully overwhelmed speedlight.

One thing I will say – even in the middle of summer, beaches on the coast of the Pacific Northwest can be quite cold.  I was not the model’s favourite person in the world after making her stand barefoot on the cold, wet sand for this shoot.
