They did put some oil on him but after he did a quick warm up. In the BTS you can barely make out the bottle of oil if you look for it. It was lightly put on so he didn't shine way too much.

Almond oil is a common choice. But I've seen people just spray on Pam, just keep your lens covered while they are spraying.

I occasionally like to oil myself down with coconut oil. TMI? ;-)a

Olive oil is also popular. Good for the skin as well.

Went to one of our local beaches today and i went with a slightly different approach today, it was super cloudy outside so i didnt think i needed much power to light my daughter up. I went with my Canon flashes and actually my first softbox i ever bought from back in the day, cheap amazon box, my $14 light stands and $9 brackets. I saw a tutorial on youtube a year or two ago about cloudy skies, setting , gels and what not, so i decided to give it a shot.. These were my results and before someone says "she does not look happy" i had her give me different expressions during the short session.. :)

Dance BTS. Seamless is a bit slippery and we tried this pose over and over again with little success. In the studio I found a small block of closed cell foam and voila!! As with all my dance shots I like them to be almost a bit unreal and it's usually possible if I have a strong dancer to photograph.

Before...

No set up pic.. But this was just my 5D3, 135L and sunrise..
Lifted shadows and did some additional PP between LR and PS.. I brought my Godox ad360II and took some shots but then i ended up shutting them off..

This is rare for me as it hardly ever occurs to me to do a BTS shot.

This is my thoroughly unglamorous home studio set up for a self-portrait, shot yesterday in my cramped living room. Since I wasn't shooting longer than half-length I opted for the collapsible BG instead of seamless, and as a result didn't need to move furnishings around very much.

Final image below is a revision of what I posted elsewhere in the forum yesterday.
