If I came to you today and asked, “Will you do a portrait session with me? I’d like something done outdoors that I can frame and send to my mom on Mother’s Day.”
What would be your answer?
Could you reply, “Yes”, with confidence?
Is there a part of you that believes that shooting an outdoor portrait will somehow be easier?
This week, David Veldman is going to walk you through 8 tips to help you succeed with your next outdoor portraiture efforts.
These tips aren’t rocket science. But, if you’re not giving them consideration… Your ship is already sinking before it sets sail. (I just thought of that… I like that metaphor!)
Here are some of the topics that David covers:
- Understand the light that you will be using in an outdoor portrait setting
- Using the Ephemeris
- Determining the best lighting options
- Using a reflector
- Choosing locations
- Making use of the changing seasons and props for creative results
I know that you will benefit from this quick read!
