#41 – Zoe at Crater Lake

07.26.10 – 7:34pm – Crater Lake National Park – f/7.1 – 1/200  -0.33  Canon T1i – Tamron 18-270mm lens – Length: 30mm  – w/ Fill flash)
Editing: Camera Raw adjustments on the jpeg: Exposure/clarity/vibrance

This will be the last of the Crater Lake photos. I took this shot of Zoe and the colors were spot on. Again, the stormy skies and filtered sunlight set up the nice saturations. I used a fill flash to expose her face correctly. I love using fill flash on outdoor portraits. Often I need to use my exposure compensation to darken up the background, but the exposure of the lake stayed true without any + or – exp. comp on this one.
