We just got back from a week long work vacation to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Beautiful location! If you’re looking for a mountain area to relax and enjoy the scenery, this is your town.
As a portrait photographer, the hardest part for me was appreciating the light for landscape and scenery type shots. I’m just not a landscape photographer and I can’t stand to back light my subjects. Just a type of lighting I’m not fond of for my own work but I do admire photographers who do it well.
I took these shots of Maya after our own professional photoshoot, to play around and appreciate this type of lighting. Although I think my subject matter, who was far more interested in playing in the dirt and gathering rocks for her collection, makes the shot more than the lighting! Maybe that’s more of the point.
More to come!
Below is more my kind of light!
