Image of the Day

Flipped



This image was made with a 1D Mark III 70-200mm L f/2.8 IS (ISO200, f/6.3, 1/500)
This shot was made at Newport News Park. The sun light was behind Beth and I had Steve hold a large reflector in front of her to illuminate her face.
I pre-metered for her face with the light on her. Beth bent over, Steve held his hand out where her face was going to be and I locked the focus. She then quickly flipped up, whipping her locks in the air.
I chose f/6.3 to ensure her face was sharp and also provide a little more leeway in case her face wasn't in the exact location of the focus plane. I wanted to go with a fast shutter to make sure I eliminated any motion blur on her face but keep a little motion blur in her hair.
