Senior 5

Senior 5

f/5, 1.160, ISO-400, 45mm, Flash

I think this is probably the most successfully-lit of the portraits I took of this girl. There are no harsh shadows other than, if you look closely, her piercing. It’s kind of a standard pose but the foreground and background lighting make a senior portrait that is likely to be unique. I wonder, though, if I need to nudge up the expose just a touch. Although evenly-lit, her face seems a little dark to me. It ended up that way because if I manually brighten the exposure then I lose the detail in the sky. I think I need to approach this shot again and apply an adjustment brush to her face to lighten it up a little, particularly since her expression really does brighten the whole area all on its own! What’s your opinion?

    • Thanks! I’ve done a little more work with it since I posted this and have achieved a better skin tone and a nicer color to the sky. I may have to post that one too for a comparison.
