I had an idea, but I did not have the photoshop skills to do this right. The only photoshop here is turning everything except Abigail to black and white. Everything in the image was really there…even the outer rain bands of a hurcaine due to make landfall late the next day somewhere along the East Coast.
This was a mad scene trying to get this shot, very dark skies, lots of movement in the scene, even with fill flash (off camera) the shutter speed needed to be at 1/60th of a sec. Abigail did her best to make my vision come to life, maybe one day I will finally have the skills to do her justice for all her hard work and dedication! As for now, I hope you enjoy the image…and yes, I am actually going to college next month to learn how this kind of image needs to be accomplished (including photoshop)! lolol…
