Location photography is always fun but can be challenging, especially when it comes to lighting. Existing light can be beautiful however it does not always cooperate. When you have an assignment and a schedule you have to work with what you have or seek to make it better.
My solution is to add some “secret sauce” to the mix. During a recent engagement shoot I took my couple out in the middle of a river in the middle of the woods. A great place for photos but not for lighting. Nice hair light but not so good for faces, especially the eyes. The solution? Splash some light from the side and add a light warming filter. Still natural but so much more full of color.
