Olive Hikes in Huntington…
My favorite subject makes her fall debut on the blog here, showing off her new digs; coat, mittens, boots and hat. The fashion guru (mommy) decked her out for the coming season.
We shot in late afternoon and for you photo people curious about technique…I almost always opt for a back-lit subject when outdoors on sunny days. By keeping the subject between me and the sun the sunlight stays out of the eyes eliminating squinting, but more importantly you get this brilliant, glowing outline around your subject while keeping faces evenly lit. Love this look! I could shoot like this all the time and not get sick of the mood it creates. I think I’m going to have christmas morning in the front yard just to get my holiday photo’s looking like this. See more of this approach from this post.
