Portrait Photography Tutorial: Shooting Outdoors in Natural Light [PART 1/3]

In this tutorial I show you a few ways of how to shoot portraits outdoors with simple natural light!

Part 2 will be up next week. In Part 2 I will show you how I retouch and edit a photo from this shoot!


Go to ebay/amazon, and then search things like “teardrop crystal chandelier” “large teardrop crystal” and then a bunch should come up! make sure to check the size and see if it’s at least an inch or two, so it’s not super tiny. good luck :)

  6. Hi, what's stuff did you use at 3:30. Look like a mirror right?

  7. thats not a good portraits..

  8. I've watched this whole "natural light" series, very helpful and informative. A question as I have is as a beginner do you think it's necessary to buy a flash or is it enough to practice my photography in natural light outdoors? 

  9. Which camera u using ???

  10. With a simple softbox you wold get amazing portraits. With just natural light you got really great results. I liked that trick of shooting with that piece of glass in front of the lens to get that effect. Great job
