there are days that I know exactly what i want to shoot and it doesn't work. The location or the weather don't cooperate. The model doesn't give their best. The gear craps out. Etc. Of those only one kills me and that is the model. In this case the model @mal_martine rocked as usual. The sky did not cooperate. The location was not the one I wanted but it turned out pretty awesome. I didn't have the lens I wanted (i had loaned out my Nikon 24 1.4 to a friend) But what I did have was Mal Martine and some speedlights and I was ready to go.
