Featured Photographer – Sherry Arelle

The gem of Budapest

1. Tell us a bit about the image. 

Budapest has a lot of famous sights, like the huge Fisherman’s Bastion. I always like to have a model, a person in the center of my photos, and -if it’s possible: add some extra, like this fabulous dress. 

2. What inspired you to take the shot? 

I am from Budapest, Hungary, and always wanted to display a location as something epic – with a model of course. 

3. What gear did you use for the shot including lighting? 

It was all natural lighting. The early rays of the rising sun shined on the model and the beautiful building. 

4. Tell us about the editing process. 

The dress was long enough to catch people’s eyes, but sometimes I needed to add some extra volume to it with Liquify. It was basically easy to edit, the weather was nice, the Bastion was almost empty and clean, it was about to pop the main colour a little bit more (blue), and subtract the secondary color: here yellow. 

5. How does this piece reflect you as an artist? 

I love to create fairy-tale moments, when women can have the time of their lives and shine in the photo. These adventures and memories are so precious.
