Join Scott Kelby, your host for this class, on location in South Beach, Miami, Florida as he introduces the class before meeting up with Jeremy and the first model for the day's shoot.
The first shoot is poolside, but Jeremy finds ways to use shapes and textures in the environment to create a very clean and simple background for the model.
Coming across a hazy glass wall, Jeremy finds a way to envision a perfect backdrop for his subject.
You can never go wrong with a simple background, and there's still a million things you can do with your subject.
Jeremy and Scott take a walk to the beach and find a perfect location for the last shoot with this first model.
For the second half of the class we switch locations and bring in a new model. The challenge Jeremy set for himself was to come up with four different setups in one small hotel room.
With several shoots done in the room Jeremy makes good use of the small balcony attached to the room.
You can do a lot with one space, and Jeremy proves it by finding another angle for a different setup back in the room.
Never one to pass up a good texture, Jeremy makes good use of the shower door.
Our model Heather has brought in her own scooter as a prop for a series of classic South Beach looks for the final shoot.
Scott and Jeremy re-cap the lessons and learning from all of the different shoots, and discuss some of the elements that really made things work.
