Photography Tip: Lighting Technique

Professional Photographer Magazine has an interesting article on how you can make the best of a bright day for your portrait photography


“For example, if I place my subject in an area where she is out of the sun but the light source comes from the open sky, I can get a nice light, but I aim for something more. That something more is usually a natural reflector. Instead of just lighting with an open sky, I may chose to use the light bouncing off a yellow building opposite my subject. I love red brick buildings because in strong sun they cast a beautiful warm light. Or I may combine the open sky with a bounce fill from a white sidewalk for a glamorous light that creates a wonderful catchlight on the bottom of the eye.”
