Using natural light for outdoor photos

Jun 26, 2019

Outdoor photography provides some of the most stunning settings. The right backdrop can take you to serene, exotic, or even mystical places without leaving your city. And the best part, a beautiful picture gives you a great story to tell your friends and family. With all of its benefits, outdoor photography can be a real challenge – even for professionals. Aris Affairs Photography shares a few tricks to get great outdoor photos in Prescott.

Before we discuss the tricks, it is necessary to understand why lighting matters. Bright, direct sunlight creates shadows on our faces. These shadows are fine if we are out enjoying the great weather, but they make for very unflattering photographs. As a professional photographer, it is our job to make certain everyone and everything in the picture looks its best.

Golden Hour

This is possibly the most basic trick used by professionals. Golden hour is the time right before the sun comes up and directly after it goes down. This lighting guarantees that you will not have to deal with any direct sunlight.

Shade

Even in the middle of the day, it is possible to get good pictures. A large shaded area, such as under a big tree, can provide excellent lighting. It is best to have the brightest areas in the background, so the light is evenly distributed.

Reflectors

Reflectors are great for redirecting the natural light. If the sun is going down, you can reflect the last few rays of daylight, or you can block some of the harsh light sneaking through tree branches.

No matter where you are, it is possible to find lighting that will work for you. If you have questions about outdoor family portraits or event photography, contact Aris Affairs Photography today. For information call 928-642-4049
