Focusing and Composition with Natural Light

February 08, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

This week we stepped it up a notch! As you may have seen in last weeks blog, we had a few photographers in San Antonio come out and get a solid foundation on camera fundamentals. This week we added to that by working on focusing and composing shots in the available natural light. We looked at the harsh light of the sun on a clear day and the different types of shade. We also covered light temperature from the cool blues of morning light to the warm golden light you see at sunset. I snapped a few shots of them using the 5 in 1 reflector. I really like the effect this has on images and how versatile it is. You get white for a soft cool subtle light, silver for a harder brighter white light, gold for that warm light , black help absorb or block light, and the diffuser panel to help create even soft light. i took some shots of this weeks model, Jasmine, using the 5-1 reflector and just the sun and shade. See if you can pick which is using what. you can check out those images here.
