Finding natural light
Light, the number one most important element of a good picture ?
Photographers talk about light an awful lot - how important it is, finding good light, must take pictures in good light, golden hour (not to be confused with golden shower), light is a big hoohaaa apparently!
Light is very simple - you go outside in the daytime and it’s there (light that is), find a bit where some parts are dark and some parts aren’t then put people in the light bit and take a picture. It’s not complicated really...
Personally I prefer moments than light, moments trump light any day of the week - can’t fake a moment, can fake light.
Anyway, light - it’s nice when it’s there
Weirdly being a full-on documentary wedding photographer I don’t set anything up, these are natural pictures of people who happen to have been where they were.
