An August afternoon in the countryside of the Pacific Northwest. Woodinville Photographer Corinne Alavekios showed up in the heat of the day to capture Hannah and her beloved pony. It took only moments for Corinne to fall into her natural surroundings of the barns and pastures. It was so beautiful it hurt, if that could be possibly understood. The light was harsh everywhere. Corinne found a small patch of shade witch was perfect as it made the session intimate and simple being in very tight surroundings. Canon EOS 1Dx is the camera of choice. The lens was a 200mm f.2.0. No peripherals were used, only available light. Corinne looks for the soft source and direction of light and places her subjects eyes into it with direction, giving a ratio as not to be too flat. This image has very little retouching, a simple levels adjustment and a few stray hairs and it was good to go. Composition is key when photographing on location especially with animals. Corinne Alavekios is known to let the life flow, unfold and waits for that moment to capture that sets the tone of the image and the session. Corinne’s joy is to photograph senior photography, Woodinville, Redmond, Issaquah, bellevue and Seattle are her closest westside cities closest to their Woodinville Photography Studio.
