To help improve my photography I've started some new photography projects. You can read more about what I'm doing on my photography projects blog. This photo was the result of two shoots.

I still haven't found out what the purple crop is, but it seemed like a great place for an outdoor portrait shot. I thought this stood out from the rest (which were mostly just happy smiley photos).

Its lovely....nicely controlled light, well exposed to keep the colours, I like the expression in the little girl and works very well. Nice shot! She will be happy when she gets older with this.....

Thank you for your comment. I think getting the light right was the hardest bit. I ended up using a couple of nd grad filters 0.3 and a 0.6 stacked, and a reflector so I could bounce some light on her and stop the sky from being over exposed. It's the first time I've used a reflector and I'm surprised at the difference it made. I'm happy with this one Smile

As above really, well composed and captured shot. Great use of light (ambient and reflected).
