Use the light

In fact, we all know that light, in general, is the most important thing. We have to think about it all the time as a photographer. We also made a blog post about Studio Photography images a few weeks ago. But today we would like to focus on natural lighting conditions. You can use this light perfectly for creating epic portrait images as well. Imagine how sunbeams that breakthrough between the trees. They start to surround the person you are photographing with beautiful light. Or think about how the light is shining through a window. It only highlights a particular part of the face for example. Super cool! There are multiple choices for you to create stunning and jaw-dropping pictures.

Backgrounds can have a huge impact on the effect of your photo. On the one hand, we love to shoot in front of epic backgrounds. But on the other hand, there is truly more out there. Once you start creating portrait images, take a look at your surroundings. It can be simple or colorful walls on the street. Also, a beautiful door in the backyard or the patio in front of your house might be dope. Even your local supermarket store can be a cool thing. So, you should always look out for a spot with settings you would love to have in the background.
