(light piano music) - Hi, I'm Derrick Story and welcome to the natural light portrait photo assignment. I have some great stuff for you today. I'm gonna start out here at the computer and I'm gonna show you some techniques for effective natural light portraits. Then we're gonna go out into the field where we're gonna do a model shoot where we use those techniques. Now some of them will work better than others and we'll find out how all that shakes out when we come back to the computer and we look at those images from that model shoot.

Now here's the best part. Once we've done all that you're gonna go take your own natural light portraits. And we have a place for you to share them with other people. We're gonna create a Flickr public group where you can post your shots. Other people can post their shots and then we can all talk about it. So this is gonna be a lot of fun. Let's get started and learn about natural light portraits.
