”Trottin’ Hot!"

Trottin' Hot

This image was captured during our shoot up on Castle Hill. I positioned Anna along the long pedestrian walkway you see in the background of this photograph. I've then backed way up and racked out my Tamron 28–300 mm lens to soften the background substantially.

Since I was working in the shaded area I didn't need to resort to high-speed flash sink. That allows me the extra firepower to get the beautiful lighting on the scene that you see in this image.

The lower camera position eliminated the brightly lit pathway from the photograph bringing all the viewer’s attention to my beautiful subject. A few tweaks in Lightroom 5 finished the result.

Camera specs: Canon 5D Mark III fitted with my Tamron 28-300mm VC lens at 218mm, 1/200 second at F7.1, ISO 1000.  Lighting camera left, Canon 600 EX-RT speed-lite through my Zumbrella.

  1. I love the compression in this shot of Anna - great use of 218mm. The leaves and trees are absolutely lovely in this location. However, I'm surprised that you were at F7.1. Beautiful! Keep the posts on Budapest coming. Thanks, Tillie
