Arrowhead Golf Club | Denver

I’ve never had a chance to capture the Lion formations from the north side Roxborough State Park at Arrowhead Golf Club, but this past summer I had the opportunity to capture a wedding through my portrait business, Rick Louie Studios and took an opportunity to capture the beautiful red rock formations. It’s an amazing view down the valley and give the Arrowhead its signature views.

I took some artistic license for this image and applied a pastel preset to it that I normally only use for portraits. It gives the image sort of a dreamy look to it.

Balancing Act – Flickr10 Photowalk

I participated in the local Flickr 10th Anniversary photo walk last month.  I never really got around to processing the photos.  The walk that evening was an exercise to get to know my new Canon 85mm f/1.2 L II better. It’s really my go to portrait lens and quite heavy, but decided that it was my lens for the evening to see what I could capture. When you have a lens that can shoot at f/1.2, not many shots are other than at f/1.2.  I love the isolation that this lens produces. It’s not the fastest focusing lens but when you nail focus it’s amazing!

I edited these images in Lightroom 5 using VSCO Film 01 pack. It contains an adjustment for one of my favorite films I used to use – Kodak Portra 400 with the exception of Armando’s Toast in which I used a Kodak Ektar 100 out of VSCO Film 05 pack.

Here are some shots from that evening’s photo walk.  Click on the images to see the large!
