When it comes to family portraiture, using natural light instead of flash is often a popular choice for several reasons. Whether you are shooting portraits of other families for money or simply trying to create your own memories, this fantastic video features five great tips for creating authentic natural light family portraits.
Coming to you from our friend, Pye Jirsa, with Adorama TV, this awesome video tutorial features five helpful tips for taking authentic natural light family portraits. Even if you do not photograph families professionally, I still think this video is well worth watching simply for capturing memories of your own family, as those are things we can always use more of. One tip I think is particularly crucial is the importance of movement, both by the family and the photographer. Posed shots can certainly have their place, but on the other hand, movement shots can give a more natural and organic feel to the images. In turn, this is more likely to capture your client's family in the sort of behavior and looks that they will remember them for and that will resonate more strongly. Check out the video above for a lot of other helpful tips from Jirsa.
