It is spring again and there are more and more opportunities to take photos outside. Right now it is unfortunately still a bit cold. At least for me. I really dislike cold, especially when taking pictures – your hands are cold, the model is cold. Not nice.
That being the case, I am happy to show you some lovely warm pictures me and Eva took of a good friend. I am very happy with how soft and natural they turned out. They have a real calmness to them.
The lighting setup for this shoot was fairly simple. I had one flash with a large softbox and placed it mostly at a 45 degree angle to the model so it lit her from the top. This created nice soft shadows that helped create drama while keeping the images well lit.
