Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Take advantage of the golden hour for outdoor portraits, part of Portrait Photography: High School Seniors.
- [Instructor] So the final shoot of the day was really fun.…We had the golden light,…I already had great shots of Ashley…and one of the things that I wanted…to do was send her off with something…that was special beyond the yearbook.…Something that her mom would want,…maybe something for the wall, that kind of thing.…So originally, we had a little bit of light coming in…and I was actually gonna have Max hold a reflector…and bounce that up and then use…that really nice background light.…
While we're setting up, I looked up…and suddenly the light was gone.…That little bit of light went away.…I really wasn't worried and that's…where I decided to pull out the fill flash,…put it on the camera.…What I do is I dial down the flash exposure compensation…to about negative one, it looks really natural.…When I showed her the pictures…on there, I said can you tell…that we used a flash and she goes no, this works right.…That's the beauty of that.…So when you have that really nice light,…just a little light coming in from the front…
