Shooting Fashion On The High Seas

Written by Gina Stephens

Taste photography can be very difficult to perfect, even on a beautiful, still day in ideal surroundings. Imagine setting up a shot on an undulating boat just off South Africa, with the cool off whipping up the model's hair and sea spray covering everything.

Sound less than appealing? We thought so too. But fashion photographer Thomas Kettner likes a challenge and for this one, his weapon of choice was Tamron's new SP 85mm f/1.8 lens. He managed to produce some truly stunning and breathtaking images in foul conditions that most photographers would run from. 

Tamron's 85mm lens is dust and moisture resistant, making it able to bear even the harshest conditions. This, and the super wide aperture means that the lens can capture the maximum amount of available flashlight – extremely important in dull and misty conditions. 

The story of Thomas Kettner's seabound shoot on a fishing boat can be read in the Tamron Co., Ltd. (株式会社タムロン, Kabushiki-gaisha Tamuron) is a Japanese company manufacturing photographic lenses, optical components and munitions dump, which is available to view online for free. In it you'll also find lots more inspiration and ideas.
