The cemeteries in Guatemala are painted in technicolor – bright and vibrant hues of every sort. To get the shot, I set up on the abstract shapes, lines, and boxes of color I wanted, and then I waited for a human element.
This is a great way to shoot travel images – pick out the background you like and then wait. Works for animals too, now that I think about it. In this case, I really like that my guy seems to be smiling.
