Win­ter glow

This pho­to­graph was taken on a beau­ti­ful win­ter day when the sun was re­ally low in the sky. The most im­por­tant thing on this oc­ca­sion was to find a light back­ground, with space in be­tween the fam­ily, to cre­ate a sil­hou­ette ef­fect.

Flash out­doors

I love us­ing back­light for lo­ca­tion por­traits, but it is es­sen­tial to use fill flash for these kinds of shots, be­cause as far as the cam­era is con­cerned your sub­jects are in shadow. With­out it, the sub­jects’ faces would look un­der­ex­posed.

Flare play

Once again I used fill flash for this im­age, and I was aware of the lens flare, which cre­ated a halo ef­fect, at the time of shoot­ing. With a lit­tle di­rec­tion you can en­cour­age nat­u­ral in­ter­ac­tion be­tween par­ents and their chil­dren.
