Fourth of July seems as good of item as any to hop in the pool and grab the camera. I used to do this more often, but lack of time and willing models never helps the process. I’ve missed it so much!
Water and light do interesting and odd things, especially with color and shape. I remember first learning about photography and discovering each shade and distortion brought upon by the refraction qualities of water. Even cooler things happen when you underexpose in bright Summer light. Color tones go DEEP. You may be surprised to know these were taken between 2 and 4 p.m., a time where harsh light can kill most portrait sessions.
The girlfriend gets to relax, I get to snap away.
Part a test of the new Zeiss 85mm, part just playing with color and water, I’m still fully impressed with the lens. Extremely sharp when closed down and amazing color makes these images pop.
That’s it for now, hope everyone had a great Fourth of July!
