Engagement Photography Posing & Lighting

Join us as we take you behind the scenes to gain an in-depth understanding of lighting, posing, technique during Lawrence & Shannon’s beautiful Orange County Engagement Session. Our first video focuses on directing our couple with a variety of standing poses, lifts, and walking poses. Using both natural and off camera flash, we were able to create a diverse range of images all in one location.

Using Light Reflectors to Bounce Light

engagement-photography-posing

Placing the couple in the shade with their backs to the sun allows us to preserve the shadows in the scene while retaining a rim of light around their bodies to separate them from the background. In this scenario, we chose to expose for the background, the foliage, and foreground grass, at a Shutter Speed of 1/1250, Aperture of f/1.4, and at an ISO of 100. As a result, the couple is left underexposed in the shade, but that’s nothing a reflector can’t fix! By adding in a bounce of light using the silver side of the reflector, we are able to capture an accurately exposed background and properly light our couple.

Engagement Photoshoot Posing

In this Chapter, we learn a great deal about how to naturally interact with your couple in order to produce candid moments. Directing your subjects on where to stand, where to place their hands, and which direction to face will lead to a more cohesive shoot and prompt your clients to have faith in your process.

engagement-photos

Attempt to capture more dramatic poses – like this lift for example – to provide varied poses in the same location. Make the most of the time you have with your clients by adjusting posing and composition based on your light and surroundings, getting in tight for portraits and zooming out to capture the environment.

Off-Camera Lighting Techniques in Broad Daylight

engagement-photography-lighting

An alternative to using a light reflector to bounce sunlight is to incorporate off-camera flash. In this scene, to compensate for light loss, we exposed to the background and added in fill light by placing three Phottix Mitros+ Flashes at a very low power-setting to fill in the shadows. Contemplate using methods of light diffusion, like a scrim used here, to decrease the harshness of the flash.

    After being in relationship with him for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster lord Adamu that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the lord Adamu and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days my ex will come back begging. I thanked him in earnest hoping he will come back to me because I miss him so much.To my very surprise on the 3rd day he came back begging and asking me to accept him back and he will never leave me again. All this would never had been possible but for lord Adamu I will always and forever recommend you to the world lord Adamu This is his contact below: lordadamuspelltemple@yahoo.com

    I am very grateful to Doctor Omoluyi for bringing back my Husband after 2 years of separation due to pressure from his family and business associate saying that i am not the same country and different believe.. This Joan Robert From Miami Florida. After enough searching and surfing on the internet, I saw a post made by Peter Dashy from Canada referring of how he was helped by Doctor Omoluyi. I also decided to contact the Doctor for help because i was desperate to get back my lovely Husband. I followed all his instructions and he promised me that my husband will get back to me within 12 to 18 hours after he has finished with the preparation of the spell. And now, am finally a complete woman with my man back by my side. To also get your help from this great Doctor Omoluyi, Email: ( Doctoromoluyispelltemple@gmail.com ) OR Website: http://www.doctorokpamenspells.com

    I believe anybody that owns 100% of your heart is worth fighting for. Yes, I am boasting because I never adhered to some negative advice from my parents when I was about getting married. There was a war between our two family then because my husband was his mother puppy, his family members used him a lot that he cant make any decision without consulting them. What surprised me most was the moment a 36-year-old man seeks his parent and some family members consent before dating anyone, the worst happened when he was instructed to bring me along to their country home in N. Rampart, New Orleans, it was risky to accept such invitation. 

    The war between our families started when he finally proposed (that was about 4 years ago), his family gave some conditions if he must wife me (we have to live with them), I was in shock when my husband accepted and was happy with their conditions (so crazy). My family wagged and demanded I should breakup with him immediately.

    I decided to give him the last shot as a man whom has already taken over 100% of my heart, I took a risk to go spiritual with them by consulting Dr. Wakina via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com, I dont know how but the spiritual father already knew I was going to consult him. He first of all told me danger I was into and how my husband has been enslaved since birth, how they keep brain washing him to do their wills.

    Like the quote that says a person sees clearly only with the heart, I realized that nobody saw what I sees in my husband and thats why I used the help of Dr. Wakina to put him out of his misery. His eyes where opened by Dr. Wakina for the first time, his family fell in love with me and granted every of our request, our families have known peace since after the love spell. It is over 2 years after the love spell and my husband has continued to improve every day without interference from his family. I have waited too long to share this amazing piece. Thanks for your time and also to Dr. Wakina. I knew him through ready some amazing testimonies on blogs.
