This is a winter shot (really?) of Natalie at Kathryn Albertson Park. A very pretty young lady with lots of personality.
I saw the sun was shining through creating all these highlights through the trees so I set her up next to these small Aspens. Her wardrobe really works well with the background colors.
I shot this with the d300 and 28-75 Tamron at F4. Softbox from the left and sun from behind and from the right giving a nice highlight in her hair.
This was one of my first experiments using the strong backlight, it took some extra processing to bring out the blacks as straight out of camera it was a bit washed out. I think it came out great in the final version.
Excellent pose Natalie, workin' that aspen!
