    Sophia at the pool. The colorful towel with stripes inspired me to create a minimalist image in which the pattern and color direct attention to the face. The angled goggles reduce drag; this makes the reflections to be off to the sides. Waited for the sun to be in front to avoid harsh shadows. The metal surface of the border and the plastic became a great reflector to fill in the light on the darker areas. No Photoshop, dodge, burn and levels to highlight the vibrant color done on Capture One.
