The past couple of days have been extremely trying. I am attempting to get back on track and lose myself in photography. Last Sunday, my mom, dog niece and I spent some time at Mount Rainier National Park. We headed up to Paradise to see the snow and the mountain. It was a beautiful day with bright sun and blue sky, which provided a lovely contrast with the snow. The clouds were moving in fast though and I only had a few minutes to grab the shots. On the way back down through the park we saw a fox in the middle of the road. I shared a photo of the fox on my Facebook page that I would love if you took a look at. (You can even "Like" the page should you feel so inclined :o). I would say the fox was the Wild part of the day and the scenery the Wonderful.
In processing, I upped the Vibrance and Saturation to the same level in all of the photos and then worked with the fill light in the first photo. I am still working on how to meter and expose photos properly for back lighting. I still have to do most of the work in Lightroom. I would love to get it right SOOC. Any helpful tips?
