Take a few moments to look at this image. It actually takes a few minutes to see what is there but when you see it you will find a compelling composition and “The “confusion” of the reflection is awesome!” say’s Robert R Fletcher.
Morning blue light mixed with early sun light hit the spot for this image in Grand Teton at String Lake. White balance set to 5200k allowing the soft blue light to settle on the areas not touched by sun light yet. These areas were accentuated to bring out a strong contrast and emphasize the Tetons reflecting in the water.
Canon 5DIII f/14.0 1/4 sec and ISO 320.

Have you seen this image before? It’s been on the cover of several books, a billboard advertisement in Los Angeles, and published in a variety of magazines and shows up in my slide shows occasionally.
A flash mob of photographers, models, makeup artist, music, red rock and fun at Calico Basin near Las Vegas during a photographers convention. Getting to this location was about 40 minutes from the strip in Vegas as the exact location was near a private home which is now impossible to get to. But we had a blast shooting beautiful models in various settings and as the sun went down the I started shooting with an off camera flash using a Speedlite Transmitter.
The sun was setting and I wanted to find the right location for this shot… I positioned the model at the top of a little mound to compose the background for this amazing outfit, then had my assistant hold the flash at about 105 degrees to my left and started to pose the model to emphasize the features of the outfit and all of a sudden, from nowhere, the wind starts to blow flowing the dress and feathers in the perfect position…
The image is straight out of the camera with no enhancements as twilight was at it’s prime for this image right at sunset and the exposure worked out perfectly with the off camera flash.
