Outdoor Bikini Photography

Bikini photography

Equipment : 
1.  Dslr camera with an 18-55mm lens : the 18-55 will help you to shoot wide angle and you can show the wider background. You can make it to 50mm for a portrait shot but on a bikini shoot the background plays an important role.

2. Soft box, flash, reflectors what ever is necessary for you.

The blue skies, beach sand, trees and the water, all these will add more to your composition.

Models :
Try to get the professional models or at least the amateur models who has learnt the art of posing, because the pose is the key to success to bikini shoots. A good pose can bring an outstanding output but a bad pose will terribly spoil rest of the things like your background, lighting and your efforts. 

Strictly no playful and funny poses. All poses must be professional, this should be informed informed to the model if she is an amateur.

The poses must be elegant and sexy enough to showcase the curves of the models..

Scared models :
If the model is scared, first talk to her very friendly and softly.
Analyze what makes her scary and try to help her in doing that.

Costume :
No pantyhose during a bikini Photoshoot. The colour of the bikini should help the model look better and contrast to the background. This is a minimum requirement and something that will be better depending on the location is appretiated.

At least 2 sets of bikini should be used for 1 session of bikini shoot. 
Personal make up kits should be possessed by the models.
Care should be taken that the models should not sweat.

light: the sun is the primary light for any daytime outdoor shoot. Try to have a soft box , a flash for shadow filling and reflectors.

Technique :

Shot 1: from the direction of the sun
Shot 2: opp. to the direction of the sun
Shot 3: from below the level of the model
Shot 4: blue sky is the only background
Shot 5: try to get the palm trees on the background
Shot 6: take some shots in the water

These are the major shots and rest is all that you compose from your ideas and experience.
