Beautiful Light {photography tips}

Recent photo shoots have once again confirmed why I so love autumn…it’s all in the light. At this time of year the sun rests lower on the horizon for more of the day, offering many opportunities to capture gorgeous images. Light is key.

Here are a few of my favorites from my latest, showcasing different angles of filtered light. When I used backlight, an assistant often held a reflector, bouncing that beautiful illumination back into the subject’s eyes.

FYI…all images shot with a Canon 7D and Canon 35mm/1.4 lens. But, with lovely light you can capture great images with any camera.

See a fun golden light photo boost how-to on the blog here.

And, of course I had to scrap some of these! The portrait style frames in Scrap.Frames 12 made for a quick layout.
