Shooting with an On-Location Outdoor Photographer
It’s Autumn Season! The colors are vibrant again. Outdoor nature is especially beautiful during this time of the year. If you especially love nature, portraits, and autumn colors, perhaps you may want to get yourself – with your beau or your family (or pet!) – photographed amidst the backdrop of Mother Nature this season. It’s the perfect opportunity to capture the natural beauty of the fall colors and to have fun as well during your outdoor shoot.
I especially love to capture the warmth and laughter that prevails during this season’s special days and holidays. Happy and lively faces in their natural settings are my fancy. Whether the photos are for sweet-November-themed ‘save the date’ cards or the family portrait for Thanksgiving or Halloween, it’s the perfect opportunity to capture the moments in beautiful photos. Of course on-site wedding photography is my favorite too, and fall weddings are one of the best instances to deliver vibrant colorful pictures.
In terms of photography I’ve always loved taking shots of the ordinary and up-ing them a notch for creativity and interest. Real people and emotions are never a passé when it comes to art. Couple this with the perfect backdrop of natural scenery and natural lighting and everything comes into place. You probably get it – these are what make me ecstatic about autumn photography!
If you want to experience having your pictures taken on-location outdoors when the fall foliage are wonderful, you might want to consider getting a professional photographer to do it for you. The thing about outdoor photography is that maximizing the use of natural lighting could be a real challenge for novices. If you want the best pictures to come out of your shoot, coordinate with the best photographer nearest your area. I service the Fort Myers and Naples areas, Southwest Florida. I also do destination weddings and other on-location shoots in Captiva, Sanibel, and beyond.
Just a few tips when working with an on-location outdoor photographer like me. Prepare for the date of your shoot. Your clothing should be as comfortable as possible – in fact everything should be (extra) comfortable – since you are shooting outdoors. So prepare just as you would prepare for camping especially if you have kids tagging along. Everything should be perfect and everyone should be in their best moods. Get this right and surely you will get picture perfect.
Remember that most on-location outdoor shoots are done in the morning and/or late afternoons (or just after the rain) so make your schedule is available during these times. Lastly, just enjoy your shoot! Can’t wait to see the photos! ~Natasha C.
