Indian Country

Posted By on Wed, Jul 18, 2012 at 3:22 AM

Shooting Indian Country during our Photo Workshop in South Dakota was a dream come true. After all those early mornings with spectacular sunrises in the Black Hills, together with fellow Photographer David M.Cobb  and several participants we did a portrait session with Melissa our Lakota Model.
We used a tipi as a backdrop while keeping the model in the shade. The setting sun created a nice rim light on her body and to offset this we used a reflector. I kept the aperture at f 4 to blur the backdrop a bit. Melissa got that stoic look on her face while we fumbled with our cameras. I loved the Eagle feather fan who gave the image some added drama.
