Mercedes-Benz Swim Fashion Week


Photographing the Mercedes-Benz Swim Fashion Week on Miami Beach at the Raleigh Hotel can be an enjoyable experience if it were not for all those pesky photographers wanting the same front row, center spot I want. This particular model wearing Aqua Di Lara swimwear was particularly stunning when she strutted out wearing the bejeweled outfit at right. 

I used a Canon EOS 1D Mark IV SLR digital camera with a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM telephoto zoom lens, set at ISO 800, shutter speed 800, with an aperture at f3.5.

A slew of photographers showed up for the annual South Beach event. At top center are Lynne Sladky, Gary Rothstein and Shane Fowler.
