Shooting Fifi McSnickerbottom – the power of natural light

sc_20140223_8

Last weekend I had a great shooting. The light was amazing and we shot with natural light only. I am time and time impressed how great natural light can work for you. 

We started to shoot at around 4pm when the sun was low(er), in an area covered by trees, next to a small creek aka ‘backyard’. The setup was real simple – I know, I always say that. I love my big lights but outside I prefer shooting natural light only. The rendering is just so unique. I shot both a roll of Portra 160 (rated ISO 75) as well as digital. Here are the general shooting parameters to give you an idea of the setup.

Lens: 150mm and 50mm
Exposure: 1/400s f/2.8 at ISO 200 (digital) and 1/250 f/2 at ISO 75 (film)
Lights: Natural light only.

Go out and shoot! — TSJ.
