Story

This shot was taken in April in the Dolomites, precisely we are on the famous Braies Lake. Initially we had not thought that in April we would still find it frozen, but instead upon arriving we were immersed by the whiteness of snow covering everything. Since we shot during the sunrise, the light was very simple to work with, even if it was reflected from the white ground. The raws were totally tending to blue due to the reflection of the sky on the white snow. I was scared that later during the postproduction time I wouldn’t be able to get them the way I wanted, but I was pleasantly surprised with the result.

“Kristina, i would love you to be framed on that rock, with the mountains around you. Once there, enjoy the moment. Hear the sound of the silence, the quite beauty of the winter season on the mountains. I would love to see your profile, so turn a little bit, and hold your flowers looking at them”

I recommend shooting from a higher point than where the subject is, and always look at the horizon line. When there are no lines crossing the subject, it is much more enhanced
