This was a special challenge, so I can't be disappointed with this score. Especially because HE liked me image!

It's been pretty hard to do: I had a model, Nicola, but a few minutes before the session he called me saying he could come.

But I was already away and ready for the shot. It was the last day. So I decided to pose for the photo. But my clothes didn't work (moreover I had forgotten the telephone) so I went back home. But while I was speaking with him (car was open) a lizard entered my car! We took ten minutes to find that crazy little animal. While we were going home, Edmondo, my assistant (and in the end the model in the photo) met a couple of guys he knew and asked them if they wanted to help us (he said: you only need to go in the water with a flash - and they accepted immediately!!!). When we were on the beach (a lot of people was walking there) I realized that taking a picture of me (therefore controlling all the settings of camera, go out and see what came out) was nearly impossible, so I asked Edmondo to be the model. I used 2 speedlights with triggers. I'm pretty satisfied with the result :)

The craziest shot ever for me... I mean, for all the story!
