Sunset in Nosara Costa Rica – Lifestyle Photos:
For almost four years I have had the pleasure to chase and photograph sunsets here in Tamarindo, my Costa Rican home base. It is rare that I miss a sunset in Tamarindo, and if I do I better have a good reason. A good reason as in chasing a sunset in Nosara Costa Rica last week during my work road trip to photograph a wedding in Playa Pelada! And let me tell you, the sunsets in Nosara are just as pretty as the sunsets in Nosara. Yes, GASP, I said it!
To top off a gorgeous sunset in Nosara was having an awesome friend to play model! Normally during sunset I need to anticipate those moments, from a surfer exiting the water to a couple walking down the beach holding hands, but last week I was oh-so-fortunate to also play creative director during sunset to get some beautiful lifestyle photos in Nosara with my stunning amiga, Kim. I was stoked when Kim booked her ticket to Costa Rica for a visit, and over the moon excited when we concluded that she needed some more lifestyle photos of her rocking her favorite bikinis. (You many recognize Kim from a magic hour lifestyle photo session, rocking beautiful pieces of clothing from Faherty Brand, from a year and a half ago.)
Sunset – check!
Friend to play model – check, check!
AND to really top it all off (yes, I said top it off twice), I got to experiment with a lens from the film era during our lifestyle shoot; I photographed the whole session (minus a couple sunset photos) with a hand-me-down lens from my parents, a Nikkor 28mm 2.8 from the 1970s. I can’t wait to show you more of our adventures while photographing in Nosara!
