Saturday was our Annual Apple Picking Extravaganza with our dear friends, The Anywho’s. *waves to Anywho* I thought it was a great opportunity to capture that Portrait that Scott challenged us all to get.
Midday, bright (harsh) light and dramatic shadows didn’t help, and of course I forgot to try flash for this photo…(tried it later under the shadow of the trees, but wasn’t thrilled with the washed out affect.)
However, I DID try that “Vivid” setting that Milkay mentioned to me, and I LIKE it!!! In fact, I may never take it off that setting. I’ve been feeling that my D90 isn’t giving me the rich tones that I enjoyed with my D40, so this might solve that annoyance.
Anyway, Mister LOVED apple picking this year, and was so proud of his loot. Here he is showing off his first pick of the day.
[Using P mode (thanks Scott!) the camera chose f/6.3, 1/640s. I had to lighten shadows in post processing.]
