I almost gave up today.. It was hot, sunny, and hot. Not like yesterday.
⚪️Many people are trying to convince me that best day for taking photos is a sunny day! I am sorry guys, but that is not true. Sun looks good on pictures if:
-We are catching the light glare on sunrise or sunset.
-You are in the shade, haha 😬
The reason is that sun creates very sharp shadows on your face and basically anywhere. Believe me, it doesn’t look nice (for sure if you are not trying to creatively play around with the shadows).
⚫️There are a few ways to solve this issue:
-Additional lighting (flashes, but it’s going to look fake).
-Reflector (it won’t solve it completely, but at least will let you cover the face area).
-Assistant and one huge reflector (a little better than just a reflector, since you can make your partner move around and cover your models/model from the light or reflect light on them).
-Photoshop (if you want it to look natural and nice- it’s a pretty time-consuming process).
I personally don’t like using flashes or any other things that can change “the lightning flow”, just because it looks fake to me (unless we are talking about “artsy post-editing”, it can be even helpful). And that’s the main reason why I advise to have the photoshoot either in the morning or before the sunset. If it’s cloudy-any time is PERFECT 🙃
❤️And for now, enjoy the photo of this beautiful couple, captured on a cloudy day!
Wishing you to stay as amazing as you are now 🎉
