A Portrait in Autumn
The thing I like most about this photograph is the lighting. Plush orange. Light violet. Olive green. Evening red lipstick. Hazel eyes. These just scream autumn to me. The best part is that background lighting was done entirely in post. I used my “Pastel Rainbow” color gradient in Lightroom to get that effect (previously it was just bland white). And I used Topaz Labs Star Effects to add the highlights in the orange. That could totally have been done outside. But what happens when you get into a situation where you get 4 days straight of overcast and rain and you need an autumn shot? In my situation, I turned to post.
