When on a shoot you need to always work the environment.
For the majority of a recent Baltimore Sun Media Group photo shoot I used augmented light to help create dramatic imagery.
Naturally, one of my favorite images came from some good old fashion window light.
When I approach posed imagery I often like the subject to take some of the control. Letting them have input on how they are photographed will often result in the more natural image.
The image above was taken as a test shot, no posing just what the subject felt like doing at that exact time.
Until next time, take care!
