Pictures in these series were taken mid-morning when the sun was not yet right above our heads. The lighting was of course bright and harsh, extremely contrasty and long shadows.
For these series of pictures, I experimented with increasing the Saturation and Contrast settings by one stop. What do you guys think, any better?
Picture of Amar sleeping peacefully. The term for technique for taking pictures of shadows on people has escaped me (something to do with "box") but here I tried to reproduce the effect on Amar by taking a picture of him under a tree.
In this picture of Nisak, the sun was behind her causing the halo-like rim effect (I've always wanted to try this). If this shot was done earlier in the morning, the halo would be a beautiful gold colour. I have to try it one day!
Just to show the size of the monument compared to little Sarah
Picture was taken under a shade so it is less contrasty, however, the monument in the background is now too bright!
