Dancing on a Sunny day!
We went outside our city for small vacation my gf and I. So on our last day, we decided to take some picture near the Fleuve St-Laurent . The sun was high in the sky and really bright. It was my first attempt to take a picture with my umbrella during the day light. I had some trouble with my settings because... I was blowing out my gf or the background. I’m happy that you can fix almost everything in lightroom :)!
What I’ve learnt
/Don’t like with this picture :
Don’t Watch out if you shoot at noon with a really bright sun (unless you have a setup like that)
The eyes are small and almost close because… see above It isn't that bad finally :P Yah I was too hard on myself
~ Buy sandbags… It was a windy day and my umbrella/tripod/flash flew away few times….
