I've always loved this picture of Tracey and it really shows how truly bright the conditions were. Even though she's brown skinned, you can tell on the upper portion of her chest, just above the Pink ruffle, how light she is and how dark the Sun made her look after just 3 days! Temperatures would be in the high 80's at 9 a.m.!!! I chose not to use a reflector on the left side of her face as it would have changed the mood. Her color and the overall brightness of the scene were most important to me when making this image. The deep shadows don't bother me at all.
