CARINA 0267

I don’t normally shoot environmental portraits because my models are in my environment and not theirs. This is an exception and one of the great things about having a model who is a friend: she allowed me to photograph her in her environment. Carina is many things. One of which is a photojournalist. Here she is working on one of her stories. That happy smile is genuine.

This began as a color image but that water bottle was creating a distraction. It was green. It was the only green thing in the frame and it kept drawing my eye. I could remove it in Photoshop but I really hate manipulating my photos that way. Just for laughs, I kicked it into monochrome. Problem solved.
