One of the biggest benefits to doing a new website is going through your images and finding something that you totally overlooked in the past.  This image was taken nearly 3 years ago in Maui Hawaii with a beautiful bride named Patricia.  I was reviewing with our design team on what we had and going through my Hawaii images and found this gem.  Thanks GOODNESS I had the Raw file so I could edit it with my skills from today because if I only had a jpeg I'd be stuck with my editing from 3 years ago and wouldn't be able to use it.  

For this shot I knelt down on the ground and really wanted to make it appear as if she was a world almost like Jurassic Park, where everything else is HUGE.  This wasn't done through photoshop, it's done by understanding and shooting for unique perspectives.  And the funny thing is by making her so small in the image she actually commands the entire focus of the image.  Hope you like it!
