PORTRAITS Bannack

I had a wonderful time up in Bannack Montana last week. I was able to capture some good images as well as learn ton about photography.

On this photo I really liked the models expression. She was relaxed and I feel like you can tell. I also positioned the camera so her head aligned exactly in the corner of the room behind her. The really liked the leading lines.

For this next photo I liked how natural her smile was, it warms the photo very well. I also liked how I gave enough lead room to frame her very well.

This couple has only been dating for a month. But they seem so natural with each other, I guess that’s just BYU-I do.

I wanted to try different lighting environments. One inside and one outside. I think that the inside light was easier to grab a selection and had I been using CS6 I think I could have gotten a cleaner outline. The one that was the hardest was the one with my niece standing with the sun back lit as a key light. I really should have used a flash to fill her in more.
