With spring approaching and along with it, lots of beautiful sunlight, I expect most of us will be outdoors taking photos of our beautiful families!
Here are a few lighting tips for you to keep in mind as you are "shooting" them :wink:

Sunset is arguably the most beautiful time of day for portrait light. But you don’t want to simply take your subject outside and start shooting. Take a few moments to identify “how” to use your light and your portraits will be dreamy.
Here are three ways you can use the light by setting your subject in relationship to the setting sun.


1. Front Light:
Place your subject facing the light. Shoot facing your subject with your back to the light. The light will brightly illuminate your subject, bringing out stunning catchlights. Take note: if the light is too bright for your subjects eyes, simply have them close thier eyes until you are ready to snap the shot – and make that moment count.


2. Side Light:

Turn your subject so that only one shoulder is facing the light. Then turn thier face 3/4 degrees into the light. This side angle will give you soft transfer edges between the highlights and shadows. This lighting will also add depth to your portrait. Shoot facing your subjects lit shoulder.


SOOOOOO>>>>
Go play with your camera one day this week! Use the sunlight and experiment with different angles and show us what you did here!
3. Back Light:
For a most unique and artistic shot, place your subject with thier back to the setting sun. On Manual mode, overexpose the portrait so your subject is evenly lit. Remember this will cause your background to be overexposed and your highlights will be blown out.

Experiment with the angle at which you place your subject to the sun and you will be more than pleased with the creative results.

Here are a few of my own examples:
SIDE LIGHT:

BACK LIGHT:

FRONT LIGHT:
...I had her look down and not directly into the sunlight. I love how this turned out!

I want you to know I tried to experiment with light on Sunday when the sun was setting. I am just a cruddy photographer or something ;) I tried. My photos were... not good.
