We’ve all been there before. a great spot with a beautiful view and clouds! But flat light. It sucks but hey it could be worse. What do you do? Well the answer is you keep on shooting. I took this years ago up at Glacier National Park, one of my utmost favorite places to go, on a stormy June morning. This is s typical Spring with snow still on the ground.
It was a great morning, albeit cold, just not a lot of pop.
This is where ACR came in handy yet again. With a little bit of painting in the foreground bringing the exposure down on the grass but keeping the flowers bright, and just a little bit of work on the mountainside to highlight the one beam of light coming through onto the hillside, creates the needed drama .
