📷 Chiara - Shot Technical Explanation
Today, I want to show you another photo of my girlfriend Chiara. This shot was made in Puglia, more specifically Castro Marina. Now I explain you how I made it.
This photo was made in the middle of an August's day. The sun was very high and the light very "strong". It was quite difficult to find a place where the girl didn't close her eyes blinded by the sun. I shot this foto with a light behind the model, a sort of basis photography rule braked.
The photo was made with a Canon 1200D with EF-S 55-250mm f4-5.6 IS STM and here you can see the technical data of the shot:
- ISO 100
- 55mm focal length
- shutter speed 1/1250 sec
Since the sun was behind Chiara, her face resulted obviously under-exposed. In a situation like this, you can fix the under-exposed face with a simple reflective panel, that reflect the light of the sun that comes from behind the girl. But I was on holiday and I did't carry with me this accessory. So I choose to take an under-exposed photo voluntary.
The photo was taken with the RAW format file and I put it into Lightroom for the post-production. The only goal for the post-production was to take a brush and slide up the light to the face of the girl. Then I also made a bit more vivid the colors of the entire photo since with the light of the middle day the colors appears desaturated.
I hope you enjoy the photo and the exaplanation.
Se you to the next shot :)
