Ideal Outdoor First Look Scene

The term “ideal” is, of course, relative. Most first look sequences take place during the middle of the day under harsh lighting conditions, but some locations definitely lend themselves more to pleasing results, even under these circumstances.

Here is a list of what we consider to be ideal elements for an outdoor scene:

  • Shaded
  • Backlit (Time of Day)
  • Natural reflectors/fill
  • Great background
