Capturing beautiful on location portraits.
When capturing on location portraits, natural lighting and reflectors will be your best friend. Although, nothing beats having some softbox lighting.
For this photo, I had my model standing in front of String Lake in Grand Teton National Park. There were two lights set up. One acted as the primary light to her left and one acted almost like a backlight to her right. My shutter speed was at 1/2000, with an aperture of f/3.5 and ISO 100.
This next photo was taken of a stranger in Grand Teton National Park. I asked him if I could take some pictures of him while he was fishing. He agreed and continued doing what he was doing. I was able to capture this action portrait of him while fishing. My shutter speed was at 1/1250, with an aperture of f/5.0 and ISO 200.
This photo was taken in front of the Tetons along the Snake River. We set up one Godox light to illuminate her face to help to not overexpose the background too much. The shutter speed was at 1/3200, with an aperture of f/2.8 and ISO 100.
This photo was taken at an old car field in Ashton, Idaho. The model was sitting on the ground in front of the car with two LED lights stuck in the headlights. My shutter speed was at 1/160, with an aperture of f/2.8 and ISO 400.
