We took the early ferry over to Rottnest to shoot the newly renovated hotel. As there are no cars on the island we had to drag over the lighting and camera cases to the hotel . Starting the shoot in the rooms with the key focus on the spectacular views. All lighting via Profoto flash heads to lift internal light levels so views did not blow out. I followed with the bar / restaurant images. The images needed to be shot in the middle of the day to capture the busy lunch period meaning sun was very high in sky, care was taken to to make shadows to deep. The afternoon Ferry was caught back to Hillarys Boat Harbour to finish a long day. Here are a few images from the shoot.
