Palm Springs Windmill Engagement Photography

Palm Springs in the summer is over 100 degrees even in the morning. The trick is to shoot in the winter time, when the temp is a mere 60 degrees in the morning, and may get up to 75 in the afternoon. I shot this in the middle of one of the windmill farms near the freeway. The trailer belonged to the couple, and I had them back it down the road into the windmill farm. Since this was shot with a wide aperture, I had to use high speed sync to light this. There is no way a normal speedlite could have done this, so I used my Phottix Indra500 to light it.

Palm Springs Windmills

Living in SoCal, I can take most of the iconic “California” shots anytime I want. Sometimes I forget that. I have been to the windmill sight many times, and have come away with different shots each time. It is a bit of a challenge to shoot “objects” creatively, but on occasion, I surprise myself.
