LIGHT SOFTENERS

PREVIOUS / NEXT

PHOTOGRAPHY by KRISS on 17 november 2016

LIGHT SOFTENERS I started this beautiful yet awfully quiet week shooting an American family under the sun ! And I was very happy to do it.
The weather was fantastic, I even went for a swim after their session.
In fact it was so fantastic that finding places where to shoot a family of 4 under nice light was quite a challenge.
In a way I didn’t mind because some portraits I believe can be done under harsh sunlight if they only carry some atmosphere and look like they have not been posed at all.
And with 2 babies, there is only so much you can do about posing anyways.

Still at some point, the use of light modifiers, wether natural or artificial are necessary especially for head shots.
Otherwise you end up with a nice photograph completely messed up by strange patches of light, like the one I have chosen to illustrate.

Although shaded by a bush behind me, the light is still not screened enough.
Have I had an assistant with a large screen behind me, the skin an the hair would have been even, soft and her face would have definitely stand out from the background.
