GORGEOUS BACKLIT SKIN TONES

PHOTOGRAPHY by KRISS on 02 march 2017

Another treat from my friend Jimmy, same place, different model.
This time I was invited to join in and shoot Evelyn and Nikolaj, young and looking fantastic (them not me).

I had to rush for some reason and left home carrying only a camera body with the Sigma 85mm f1.4.
I brought no light, no triggers, nothing.
Jimmy was very happy to let me use all the studio light he brought along but I decided against it and shot only in natural light.
There are lots of advantages doing that, starting with the workflow.

After all, technology have so much evolved that now I take every single advance as such, be it lighting or post-processing.
I mean, I consider them a tool in my photography bag.
I have them at my disposal to facilitate my life and if I think I can go much faster shooting natural light backlit with shadow recovery and contrast in post, I do it.
If I feel not using a strobe is going to cost me hours of photoshop, then I’ll vote against it and spend the time needed to properly set up a light and thus save me lots of time in post production.

This time, despite all the tools at my disposal, I felt like shooting as wide apertures as I could with plenty of backlight and I am very happy with the soft atmosphere that creates especially for couple pictures.
