Portraits with Indirect Sunlight

Shooting with Available Light

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)


Steven van Veen explains in his opening here you needn't search out an exotic location or chase the sun around the planet to find the best lighting situations. The point beings, less is more. 

Generally we let the light direction dictate our compositions. Steven shows us how indirect light is more even and plentiful enough to bring out pleasing flesh tones and softer edges without giving up on contrast. With the model Felicitas, he gives us three settings with all the detail regarding exposure settings and tips for model positioning too. This is one for the case book.. Look and Learn!!
