When I look for a location whether it’s in a house or whether it’s outside I’m always looking first of all to see what kind of scenery that I have, and try to visualize my space with somebody in it.
Once I’ve got into that point I will then try if I have somebody with me to put them in there, and to see how the light looks, and to see if that location and if that particular vantage point will work for the portrait that I’m trying to create.
Perfect! Wow! We’re going to look right over here.
If it doesn’t then I’m going to be very flexible and I’m going to move and look for another place where that light source will work in the environment that I may in.
Okay, so I’m just kind of getting you guys right here in this little section.
When I’m outside I can take my subjects and I can move them around until I find the light that I am looking for. Right that I’m looking at their faces I’m looking to see if there is a pretty light. It depends on what type of date or what kind of date is if I have if it’s a cloudy day. If it’s overcast it’s such kind of soft light I can shoot in all day long. If it’s bright outside and I have to shoot it that time of day then normally I’m shooting with the light behind my subjects, and I’m shooting directly into it. If it’s later in the day where we have that beautiful sweet light and hour before sunset it doesn’t really matter where you put anybody, the earth and everything that time of day looks absolutely beautiful.
So I think what I’m trying to say at this point is notice the light. If you notice the light then that will help to direct you that will help you to set up your subjects in right place, and you ask the artist thus the maker of this particular image or the only ones that can really determine if it’s right for you. If you look through your lens and you see your subjects, and you like what you see then you know you’re in the right spot.
There you go. The trees, okay, and then shift your way and then you just yes; you got to look at me over your shoulder. It’s perfect.
I remember that look. Look at me. Okay, perfect light is see how beautiful these trees and everything are back left right there. So we can out them just really pretty. It’s a pretty view.
Okay, do me a favor Laurence; see the spot of light over there? On the grass, can you go stand in that for me? Okay, here we go.
Okay, Simeon strikes a pose. That works you can do that. All right, then Lorraine I want you to move yes little bit closer to Simeon, happy though.
There’s no smiley, okay ready one, two, three go. Look at me. Well, that is such a pretty picture.
