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.
