SteemitPhotoChallenge Entries - Portraits in the German Black Forest

5년 전

With this Photochallenge I decided to go with my trusty Canon 1.4. Although the focus is a bit slow and not always on point, it makes beautiful crisp photos and very nice bokeh. I went with my friend to the Black Forest near Freiburg. We had to get up at 4AM because we wanted to be there at sunrise. I always find that the soft light of the sunrise is even more beautiful than the light during sunset. We were actually hoping for inversion weather since that's pretty common where we wanted to go, but the clouds were literally too high: We weren't above the clouds, we were IN the clouds. Anyway, I think that the fog was still perfect for Portraits.

I was trying different apertures but I was all the time coming back to f1.4. Many photos were out of focus because of the narrow depth of field but I think the tradeoff was worth it since the narrow dof went really well with the mystic flair of the fog.

I also like the top photograph, though it appears to be a desaturated image yet retaining some blues in the sweater and some reds in the lips.

Wow I'm amazed... You're right. I did push the red and blue levels a tiny bit :)

congrats on getting the honors for the #steemitphotochallenge - I think your image was the only one I commented on for this challenge! I suspect most didn't see the color information, but I think it contributes to the allure of the image - I tend t like these atmospheric type shots.

I like the b/w shot. thats good :-)
