Anatomy of a Cave shoot.... On the shot list a couple days ago was to shoot a group of travelers in the Rio Frio Cave in the Pine Ridge Mountain of Belize. A beautiful, large cave about 1/4 mile long, and a short distance from the jungle border of Guatemala. The mouth is huge, and once in, the stalactites hang mysteriously in the darkness. We wanted to keep the dark, mystique about the cave, as well as show it's immense size. I shot from above with a D3 and used two sb800 strobes and PW's remotes. I set both up behind some Rock formations to keep hidden and fired them from about 70 yards away. The group was lit with a good balance of entry light, and retaining the dark, immense, mysterious ambience of the cave!!

Just finished up some portraits Mitla, Oaxaca. Another week left on this assignment, and it's been a blast! I shot this beautiful Zapotec woman weaving and using natural dyes made from cacti... Simple set up with a couple strobes and reflector. Heading To Belize next, to shoot some more for myproworld.org. Ciao!!
