I embrace harsh light. That 2 PM, middle of July, probably-should-have-put-on-more-sunscreen light. It’s a product of living in Arizona when I started photography, and now I bring that brightness into all of my locations.
Part of the fun of photo shoots is finding unique locations and environments. What is the location saying to us? What does the location mean to you? How can we incorporate it into poses, outfits, and the overall theme?
Harmony is what brings everything together. Light means nothing without shadow. We seek that pleasing sense of balance. I create or look for harmony in textures, colors, and other details of the shoot.
