How to capture rich blue skies


I want to remember:

Watching him run carefree through the sunset with two balloons tagging behind like eager friends. He proudly introduced me to each of them when he arrived home, and with great loyalty brought them along on every adventure and outing for several days. How they didn’t pop or float away to the heavens was evidence of their own devotion.

Documenting Tip:

Face your subjects towards the sun at sunset for a rich blue sky and dramatic front lighting.

  1. Love these thoughts. What a thoughtful observation on a simple thing.

    Great tip, too. (The luminance slider in Lightroom is my favorite for rescuing blue skies, too…nudge the luminance down and it enriches the blue.) Oh childhood summers! <3
