Sunset portraits series: Dana
And finally a face 🙂
I find doing portraits, or just photographing people, intimidating – the final result should be a fine balance between how a person sees themselves, how you see them and how the camera captures them; and getting that balance is hard. This was not an organised photoshoot, my friend Dana hasn’t dressed in any special way or put any special makeup, it was just a simple walk in the park, at sunset, with a friend who has one camera (actually two as I was carrying both my Fuji and my Nikon). Here I played with some presets in Lightroom to get a soft, warm but intriguing feeling to reflect Dana’s special beauty and her artist soul – she is a painter in search of many answers :). The first image is captured with my 40mm Nikon and the other four with the Fuji x100S.
PS I love the sunset light and I hate complicated settings, so I decided to start a series called ‘Sunset portraits’. I would appreciate any feedback, advise, comment.
