Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Explore the light in various shoot locations, part of Portrait Photography: High School Seniors.
- I'm finding these days I'm getting more and more requests…for outdoor portraits for the senior photos,…which I'm fine with.…I think that's fantastic.…And if you look at current yearbooks,…you're gonna see the same thing.…You're gonna see a lot of variety in the backgrounds.…And it's pretty exciting stuff.…I think it makes the pages more interesting.…But you will get some requests for indoor shots too.…So regardless if you're indoors or out,…you're going to have to think about lighting,…and you'll need to think about location too.…
For example, we're indoors right here,…but I really depend on time of day for the lighting.…I use this natural light coming in from this window.…And a lot of times I'll add a reflector,…and that'll be pretty much it.…And if I'm scouting other locations, indoor locations,…I'm looking to see if there's any natural light available…that I can use to supplement the lighting that I may bring.…Now, outdoor portraits, of course,…is all about the lighting that's provided for you by nature.…
