Dark & Stormy by Hinterland Stills

Dark & stormy is dramatic in all senses, from greens that are rich and full of depth, orange undertones balancing against punchy highlights and sharp contrast, finished with a crunchy grain to give shadows a texture that can almost be touched while retaining natural skin tones amidst the drama. My style works especially well in mixed outdoor settings, golden hour backlight and really shows its full potential when shooting slightly (read: one full stop) underexposed. I’ve always loved movies where you can press pause and the still frame feels like a piece of art all on its own, I believe dark & stormy elicits the same sensation across images it’s used with.
