Since yesterday I was busy having a very awful day, I didn't manage to post a picture of the day. So I'm making up for it by posting two today. These images are both taken from the same shoot, one I did nearly three years ago. (!!!) I ran across them while looking for something else, and while I still love the pictures, I wouldn't shoot the whole series at all the same way now. Or process them like this. It's a good thing, I think, to grow as a photographer.
I do remember that while doing this shoot the sun was much, much stronger than I was hoping for, and I had almost no experience shooting in those conditions. Consequently most of the pictures have really hard shadows. But I think it was this shoot that started me learning the joy of backlighting. You can see the rest of the shoot (and prehistoric editing) here
. Lots of learning, no?
I used to edit everything in photoshop, the early version is here
. This one was done with Lightroom. Regardless, I love the sense of life in this.
I actually hate the framing on this picture. But I love the light and I adore the sparkles on the water.
The moral of the story is: practice makes perfect! Or at least much, much better.
