They say that taking photographs is like painting... but with LIGHT. And this is so true! Just like a painter would look for the best quality paints to create something beautiful on a white canvas, photographers are always searching for the best possible light to create beautiful photographs of their subjects. ———————————————————————- On my blog today, I discuss why having extremely bright light (like the one we get around noon on a beautiful, sunny day) isn't always the best kind of light for portraits (especially if it's not handled correctly by a photographer). I also discuss why shooting portraits outside on an overcast day isn't as terrible as it sounds. 👆🏻 In fact, I shot this photo of Liz and Rich on a cloudy day in Central Park! ———————————————————————- So if you're out there wondering whether you need to reschedule your portrait photo session because you woke up to a gray, overcast day, or if you're panicking because the weather forecast says it's going to be cloudy on your wedding day… please take a deep breath. And then hop on over to my blog so that I can put you at ease. The link to my blog is in my bio!
