In this session, you’ll learn how to harness the shade when taking portraits in the middle of the day, mimicking the “golden hour” effect.
Even if you are new to photography, you probably have heard of the “golden hour” – a period of time around evening when the light is just perfect. Well, it is possible to mimic that lighting even if it is in the middle of the day. In this session, you will learn how to take advantage of body placement and having your subject in the right direction in front of the sunlight. With the aid of a tall background (such as trees), you can add a beautiful glow around a portrait’s skin. This perfectly mimics the kind of light you might normally only find just before dusk.
