I love to talk about backgrounds. For me, the background is often one of the most important elements to a photograph. That’s why when I get to a location, my Background Alert System is turned on and I immediately start looking for a killer background to host my subject.
And for those of you concerned with such things, each of these photos was pretty much straight out of the camera with nothing more than a typical levels, curves, cropping and sharpening adjustment made to bring the photo to the point where I wanted it. I spent about 15 to 20 seconds in Photoshop tweaking these images.
