This is my friend who models for me. She had a great hat that I wanted to use for the photoshoot. Lighting from two softboxes.

For this assignment I decided to visit a small town in the vicinity of Austin called Wimberley, it’s a small touristy town with handcraft and antique shops and a variety of restaurants. The Cypress Creek runs through the town which is where I took my photo. The area along the creek was mostly shaded but there were some spots where the sun shone through and made photographing a little more challenging. Originally, I was going to take a photo of the tree stump but then this little girl climbed on it and just sat there so I took the opportunity. I did the necessary edits on Lightroom and after the B&W dreamscape process I did the necessary exposure adjustments, while I was doing this I noticed the tree stump and the little girl was still a little too dark, I decided to isolate the area and lighten it a little bit more than the rest of the photo. I like this shot because it gives me a feeling of an enchanted forest with these two little girls playing in it.

After daddy made scrumptious pizza to order for everyone, there was no bedtime book that could have worked but the famous Pizza Pig book. Simple iPhone edits and a tiny crop to keep the focus and set the context.

I opted this week to shoot my straw cowboy hat (my ourdoor work/garden hat), and then was curious about doing a double exposure. The lines were simple and clean and I thought they wouldn't compete. The natural shadows were blue (from outdoor lighting), and I ennanced those blues a bit t keep the blue/orange color combo. The upper layer was reduced in size which created the border and the upper layer had a stroke with an Overlay blending mode for the fine line.
