I have to admit I was the tiniest bit concerned what the marshes would look like as smoke filled the skies the day before our shoot. We’ve had a very generous amount of time this year without fires, which has been shocking! Normally we are smoked in by September vs. mid-October. But while it made editing skin tones a nightmare, it led to some very dramatic photos! I added nothing to these skies or sun flares in editing – only brought back what was already there.
