Dramatic Portraits Using Natural Light | Brett Florens

Most of us start our photographic journeys shooting with naturally available ambient light. How to master this readily available light source is an art that takes thought, planning and experience. Being able to control and manipulate natural light to create images that will differentiate your brand in a congested market is essential to a profitable, sustainable business.


Since most weddings are planned for seasons with a better-than-average chance of good weather, you may need to learn how to shoot in harsh, direct light. Here is a series of images created within minutes to ensure that there were no ambient light changes. They reveal the various ways to combat unflattering light, as well as utilize it to create images that clients will be happy to hang in their homes.
