Natural lighting

Photography, Portrait

For want of a model, my other half has yet again stepped in front of the lens on a lazy Sunday morning.   I recently bought a book called ‘Lighting People’ by Rosella Vanon, hoping to pick up a few hints and tips.   I’m only part way through but I’m already itching to find a few models and spend time experimenting.

This image is simple natural lighting exercise.  The subject sat next to a large window and a reflector was placed opposite the window (though in this particular image, you don’t really see the benefit of the reflector).   I ummed and ahhed about the post production – should it be black and white or completely natural colour?  In the end I decided to go with a cross-processed look and cooler tones.
