I applied a hand colored look to this one.This spot has a fantastic view of Mount Rainier, Commencement Bay and Tacoma.
We finished at Dash Point park where we got lots more great images. It's fun and challenging shooting on location. I use what I find there as the "props" and adjust with the changing light and weather conditions.
Here's an example where the background was very bright, and we were under the shade of a tree, so I used my softbox flash as a main light, exposing for good color in the background. The sun provided a perfect rim and hair light.Here's an example of using the sun as my main light, and filling the shadows with my flash unit. Positioning a subject so that the light is from the side accents shape and form. Using shadow is just as important as using light in good photography.I applied a special warm, grainy, contrasty, technique to this image for a different and dramatic look.And I gave this one a rich chocolate tone, with a sweet smile for mom.
