I confess, I’m a camera geek. Wireless flash is flippin’ sweet. I like to hang out with strobists, or anybody who knows what I mean when I say “three quarter key light with a kicker”…
However, I just gotta say: “Eat your heart out, Joe McNally!” …Here’s an ode to natural light portraits! As much as I like flash, and all that geeky stuff, there really is nothing like working with what you’ve got.
(I guess in continuation with my previous blog post, which was also pure 100% daylight portraits from the SD Photog Shootout. Here’s a recent engagement session, and a last-minute portrait session with Rachel Amara on the beach.)
(Images captured on a Nikon D300, The first four images with my beloved Sigma 50-150 2.8, the last with my manual focus Nikon 24mm 2.8… RAW capture, processed in Bridge CS3, no burning / dodging etc… Just some sweet light!)
