Day at the Race

I haven't done a lot of portraiture, and since I was at the race I'd figured I'd get in a little practice. Here's a couple shots of my step-sister while we were tailgating at the Coca-Cola 600 this past Memorial Day.

Re: Day at the Race

I like these. The lighting in #1 is well controlled - the bright parts are not blown out and there is still good visibility and detail in the shadows on her face. Did you use fill-flash or a reflector? #2 isn't bad either, but it has less contrast than #1.

Good luck,
Richard Baker

Re: Day at the Race

Nope, shot them both as is. I don't think I even color -corrected these ones. The clouds kept passing by overhead so it's very likely that there was no sun in the first one, and a cloud over the second.
