A Coca Cola Feature


I went to Idaho this week to shoot some pictures of this gal for my photography class and got this shot yesterday. LOVED the coca cola picture painted on the side of the building. The girl in the pic is a gal that was modeling for our class photo group. I was happy with how it turned out and it was great to go out and shoot for once! What a nice day!

CC always welcome
TIP: you need to click on the picture and look at it in large format to really get the full effect of the picture. Otherwise it looks too dark, but when you see it in full, you'll see it's quite lighter than it appears.

What a fun building! I love the picture...great job! I might have lightened it slightly... but I think I might lean towards the light too much sometimes. ;)

Katy said...

cool picture!! The building is awesome too! I like how the girl in the picture shows off the scale of the coke- good job!

I thought of lighting it up a bit, but when you look at it in large format, it's pretty light...so I didn't.

Holly said...

I love it.

Melinda said...

I really like it. I, too, wondered about the lighting, but I like what you did. I think I would have cropped just a tiny bit more...not quite sure why that bugs me, but it does. But I love your take!

That's what I thought at first Melinda, I was going to crop out the lighter part where the sun is shining through, so I tried it, but when I did, it killed the effect of the picture...made it look too flat. So I left it.

I love that building!! It's so vintagey... I made up that word, but really... this building is AWESOME!! It makes for a really great backdrop. Great job!!

I love your composition and how all of the colors and styles coordinate! Great job!

Very nice job, I did enlarge it and the colors are beautiful and I like the way the girl is posed against the wall. Does she know she's a star on mission 24? Job well done.

What a great backdrop! I love how you posed her also. She does look slight OOF- I think the wall grabbed the focus- but it's hard to tell.
