Outdoor Portraits – Free Quick Guide

One of the real benefits of adding outdoor portraiture to your photography skills is that it doesn’t require a large investment in equipment.

In fact, if you have a camera and some knowledge you’re ready to go.

A few key factors can make or break or your outdoor portrait attempt.

  • Have you taken a moment to evaluate the lighting? What direction is it coming from? Is the lighting harsh and direct or soft and broad?
  • What does the background look like? Is the background adding to the portrait or detracting from it? Does it overwhelm the subject? Could a simple change in camera or subject position create a better background opportunity?
  • Have you thought about the style of the picture? A portrait should say something about you and your subject. The use of style is one factor to help you communicate that message.
  • Preparation is vital. Nothing will kill the mood with your subject faster than them having to stand around waiting on you because you’re unprepared.
  • How do you connect with your subject, so that you capture more than just a representation of their face?
