This shot was probably the easiest of the shots I took of Liz. Her laid back attitude is shown with her Indian’s ball cap on and only a hint of a smile. She was facing into the sun, with some trees filtering out most of the sunlight. Her hat creates a shadow across her face, but isn’t too dark to create distraction.
This photo was taken with the sun facing Liz’s torso, but with her face towards the camera, her face is not over-exposed. I also used 1/400 shutter speed to freeze the water in the background. The water color also matches the color of the whale, which adds an interesting element to this picture.
Liz is staring adoringly at her wooden whale. She LOVES whales, and this picture depicts that love. The background begins to blur, helping separate the the background and foreground.
Although the sky is quite bright and over-exposed, this is my favorite picture that was taken. Again Liz is showing her love of whales by staring at it adoringly. Another thing I loved about this photo is the cool, blueish light that was produced by being in the shade of a building. With her whale being a turquoise, and her shirt being dark blue, it really adds a calming sense to the picture.
