Environmental Business Portraits
As a professional photographer Oakham Rutland it’s sometimes nice to explore different aspects of photography to broaden your skills. I’d been thinking of ways to connect with local business owners while working on a photography project. In addition to my Business Headshot Photography I was keen to try more environmental portraits for business owners outside of my photography studio in Oakham.
The challenge of photographing in midday sun!
With Jack’s Kixx business focused on football. Ideally the best place to photograph him in his working environment, would be on the football pitch. We’d arranged to meet up in Stamford before midday. The weather had been hot and sunny and was not forecast to change. This was the perfect opportunity to incorporate some flash photography into the photographs.
The harsh midday sun brings some challenges to photographers. But there are a few ways to use it to your advantage. We chose a goal which positioned Jack with his back to the sun. I can then set the camera to underexpose the background so the sky retains it’s colour and details. Typically this would then cause Jack to be a silhouette but this is where the flash photography comes into play.
