Direct Sunlight Engagement Portrait – How We Shot It
Usually, for natural light photographers rule number one seems to be “Avoid direct sunlight at all costs! Run for the shade!!!” While this is certainly a good tactic for those closer-up portraits where you need your subjects to smile at the camera and be flattered; I do find that direct sunlight is one of my main tools for creating dramatic images during the day.

Vintage Style Natural Light Portrait at Sunset – How We Shot It

Editorial, Magazine-Style Bridal Portrait – Weekly Edit Season 2 Episode 2

This version has been re-processed in Bridge CS6, using the 2012 Process Version and the SLR Lounge Preset System for Adobe Camera Raw. Enjoy!
Natural Light Bridal Portrait – How We Shot It
This is a spot I often use for bridal portraits, and usually I shoot from the other direction because there is such gentle, soft light falling on the subjects’ face thanks to all of that open shade you can see. This time, the bride was gathering up her dress to continue on with the wedding day, and I snapped a frame from the opposite direction.
