"I took this shot of my friend Byron in front of Manz. It was really interesting taking flash pictures because I thought the flash wasn't going off but he assured me it was.

As for post-editing, I increased the contrast and exposure to make the colors more vibrant here."

For fill light, I used the natural background of the tree and the sky. My main focus was the spotlight of the sun on his face to really make it stand out. I didn't do anything editing wise but it could have been cool to play a bit with saturation levels but it looked really nice as is. It was also really tricky"
