Diffused Portrait

Posted on | Shot on at 17:00:00

Shot in the bar after skiing. The moisture from skiing had fogged up my lens causing an organic diffusing effect that made for a couple cool portraits when paired with the light coming in from the window next to us.

  • this is beautiful! it has that relaxed and content but slightly fuzzy feeling that comes at the end of good day out in the cold.

  • A very cool effect! Thank you for showing how you capture the image, beautiful!

  • oh, yeah.. that.. i hate it when that happens.. it’s nice to see that it didn’t hinder you from shooting.. i should’ve shot a few frames off when i encountered that.. could’ve come up with some cool shots too.. :)
