I had fun with this shoot because we were able to incorporate two distinct locations that were only three minutes away from each other. Nallely and I first met up at Juanita Bay Park for a few tall grass & boardwalk portraits and then met up at the Heritage Hall building in Kirkland. Surprisingly, the leaves are already changing colors! We spotted some red, orange, and yellow hues amongst the greens and were pleasantly surprised. Her red shirt worked so well with the faded red foliage. Congrats Nallely!
These photos were taken during the first week of October. It took me awhile to post process because of how busy school started to become, but I finally finalized the images and thought I'd share.
Green Lake Park in Seattle is such a beautiful location. I've only been a few times, which is surprising because I've lived in the Seattle area for 95% of my life. It's definitely a great spot to hang out for a few hours and get away from the chaos of the city. The park itself is huge, filled with beautiful park bench lake views, tall whimsical trees, and people of all ages rollerblading, biking, and walking along the trails.
This fall I didn't have as much time to explore beautiful transforming Washington nature as I wanted to (capturing fall colors is something I look forward to every year when it comes to photography) but I was able to stop by the park and these are a few of my favorite captures. The post processing is a bit different in terms of style but I like the Polaroid feel. It was also a day dedicated to testing out my new wide angle lens: the Canon 16-35mm. 2.8. This lens has been a top priority of mine for a good year now and I'm so happy to finally have it be a part of my growing collection. It's definitely a lens I plan on taking with me on adventures for breathtaking landscape views.
These next set of photos were processed with more natural tones and realistic colors of green and blue.
