I just wondered how the big boys in photography handle this situation in a swimwear shooting: I'm sorry if my human/dog like model causes nightmares...
But it logically casts a shadow onto the ground as well and creates a hard transition to the surroundings, in this case the sand, which is bright as hell.
My question now is, how does the industry get rid off the hard transition? Just a case of right framing the shot? Or taking one shot with and one without the diffuser and merging both images together in PS?
Saw this typ of situation in a Victoria Secret photoshoot on Youtube...the photographer used a wider angle lens so had the rectangular shape in his shot...thats how I came up with this question...
