Travel Photography in Peru... Create a dramatic portrait

I just love how colorful Peru is! The people dress in bright clothing, the women wear their hair in beautiful long braids, everyone seems so vibrant, including this adorable child carrying a small lamb. The children stole my heart!

The right background can make a photograph. This child was originally standing in front of a bright background with harsh elements. Positioning the subject in front of a colorful and textured background creates a more flattering overall image that speaks about Peru.

Hope to see you on a future trip on this great planet! I'll be co-leading trips to Cuba, and Africa next year, hope you can join us! Send me an email for more info.

Have fun shooting! ~ Deb
