CC is always welcome for me so CC away! Only way I'll learn.
Anyway, went for a walk today instead of taking the car. Stopped by the playground, took some pics but oh my gosh...full sun even in the fall sucks. And it's worse for us in the fall because the sun isn't right above us when it's at its highest. It's more on the side if you know what I mean. It was a nightmare. I'll have to go back when the sun isn't so harsh. I only got a few pictures that I am sorta satisfied with. Mommy goggles on of course. I love them! And Jeanette is getting to that point where she will no longer look at the camera Or makes faces. :rolleyes: Oh how I wish I had a more willing subject.
found a blue door to take a few pictures in front of. see the harsh shadows? Oh it was horrible
She was facing the wrong way but if she had been facing the other way she would have been really squinting. There were no trees anywhere to be under some shade. Oh well! I played around in PS with the brush to get rid of the bit of blown areas on her jacket. I tried my best to do most of the PPing in ACR.
I don't know what I was doing. I increased aperture and decreased SS for some reason.
And i used my flash? lol I guess I wanted to get rid of the shadow. oh well!
would this one be called back lighting? it's so hard no to blow the hair, etc. and question...in photography is it a big no-no to blow certain spots? I don't know how to get around that. I wish her eyes were brighter but I didn't want to play around too much with this picture.
And my sunburst this one came out good i think
