So on Monday we decided that we were going to go out while there was still some snow on the ground and shoot the Little Red Riding Hood theme like we've been wanting to for a few months now. We brought along our lighting equipment, a few modifiers, and some hiking gear and we were all set to make some interesting photos.
One thing we often notice nowadays is that people are constantly bombarded on social media and other places with photos of the same old stuff just done up a little differently by someone with a camera. Sure, we do enjoy making good portraits of couples and of their families, but it's nice to do a project where we can just about control every aspect of how we want the photo to look.
For those who know me, I'm not one to do a ton of digital manipulation to "correct" a photo. I would rather subscribe to getting the image right the first time in the camera and using software to do minimal editing when needed. Sometimes people forget the importance of traditional photography and the timeless skills required to actually make a good image. That being said we did enjoy using post to create a snow affect over laying some of the shots we made.
Here's to more fun making photos in the middle of the woods!
