After getting some great feedback of what YOU want to hear me talk about, today I’m going to focus on the timing of photo shoots.
With few exceptions, there isn’t really a wrong place to shoot your session, but there is a wrong time. As a natural light photographer, I almost always shoot in the 2 hour window after sunrise or before sunset, also known as the “Golden Hour” That’s when us outdoor photographers love to shoot! The sun is lower on the horizons, the shadows are much softer and magical, flattering light seems to beam all around. For me, I don’t compromise on the time of photo shoots because if I do, it will compromise the quality of my work that I can give to clients.
Most people simply don’t understand why I don’t shoot portraits at high noon, but usually when I tell them that it will consists of harsh light, raccoon eyes and blown out backgrounds, they usually agree that the early morning or late evening has the most flattering light for their photos.
I mean, don’t you agree?!
Stay tuned for next week’s tip on shooting photos!
