This was shot in a special location in Laguna Beach, CA from my trip in June. The sun had pretty much already gone down and I had extremely limited light, hence the dark atmosphere of these photos. I was very worried we wouldn't get any useable shots because I had so much grain from the low lighting. But I'm actually happy with how these turned out. I definitely want to do more location shoots in the future. I am tired of the studio.
Remember this Victorian outfit (Lilya's)? Well, I sold my mnf body, so the jacket no longer fits anyone, but I finally had inspiration to make Avis a jacket of her own. I was going to shoot her in snowfall but I missed it yesterday and it probably won't snow again for a while. So, I settled for some regular bright weather. Although the sun came out and ruined my shoot... (Blue photos harsh contrasts -do not appreciate)
Bit of a fashion faux-pas with Avis and the muff + Victorian era clothing, instead of gloves. But you know Avis; whatever floats her boat. (And that I'm certainly not making gloves in Narae size -it's hard enough for Dollshe's).
i always love photoshooting at the golden hour, golden moment where all you can see is beautiful golden light, it bring warm feeling inside ♥ and i was soooo happy i could get another beautiful golden hour moment at this photoshoot
This year (2012) the autumn forest shots were kinda messed up by nature in Hungary - the long and warm September-October delayed the golden part by 2 weeks to the middle of November, and the windy-rainy weather also destroyed it early, withing 1 week. Sadly I can only submit the autumn shots from last year only.
Here I tried to make the exposure as long as possible (to show the slow streaming movement of the leaves on the pond) with the perspective as wide as possible. Even here I felt how restricting the Cokin P system feels on ultrawide angles: at f/16 I'm already 2 steps into diffraction territory, but using a stronger ND filter would have required to include another filter between the lens and the filter holder, restricting the angle of view to ca. 14mm focal lenght. Yet another reason to get the Lee system... *sigh*
