Hurricane

So, as most of you may know, yesterday Hurricane Isaac made landfall in my home state of Louisiana. Me and my family, as well as the majority of the region that I live in were very fortunate to not experience the harshest parts of the storm. There were many areas that lost their homes to flooding, trees down, and the like.

 

Since this storm was not as strong as many I've experienced in my life I decided that it was the perfect opportunity to go out and take photos:D It still wasn't easy, considering I was experiencing gust of up 50mph at times and heavy rain...but it was quite fun. With this photo I wanted to go for a more "commercial" look while editing. I'm trying to practice with skin tone, retouching, and making an impact with my photos. Although this was not the original photo I had planned to post, once I started editing this one I realized that I hated the expansion shot in comparison....so I stuck with my gut even though I had taken the time to expand and start editing the other.

 

A while back, when I shot the Pocahontas themed photo, my friend made a video of the process. I'm so happy she did, because it's so cool:D
