Hi guys here’s a quick summer fun snap I took on new year’s day 2011.
This is of a friend of a friend, Camila, playing that weird seemingly pointless bat and ball game that Europeans and South Americans are crazy about. I’m sorry but how is it a game if nobody can win? …please someone explain to me, is the point just meant to be ‘have fun’? If so it just doesn’t qualify as a sport! 😉
It was a beautiful afternoon, great lighting and a great moment with the shorebreak sending a flash of water up the steep beach just as Camila struck the ball in my direction with a big smile. Click. It also gave off a vibe to me of some distant nostalgic summer memory so I put a light split tone through the image warming the highlights and cooling the shadows, creating the slight vintage effect of the image. Being a square crop also added to this effect.
Let me know if you enjoy, more to come soon.
