There’s a disturbing rise in the popularity of portraits taken by “professional” photographers with little to no training. This day and age, anyone can buy a camera, put up a website and call themselves a photographer. By offering “on location” only shoots and promoting “natural light” portraits only, photographers are able to cut out a lot of overhead costs, but at what price? It's not always the case, but no studio location and no lighting equipment tends to indicate a lack of formal training, and it also rules out half of the portrait experience you deserve. Scenic outdoor shoots with natural light are beautiful, but we would prefer to give you that PLUS something more. We don’t just understand lighting (which it is often necessary to supplement, even in outdoor shoots with “natural light”)- we paint with it.
Photo editing programs and filters can only carry you so far with a photograph that is not properly lit. Take a look at a few of the examples from the PPA below :
