"Napa Valley Beauty"

This image was taken yesterday during my Napa Experience Workshop.  The light had changed quite a bit while we were shooting in the afternoon.  The original location down this walkway was now flooded with light which was overpowering the beautiful natural light coming in form the left hand side.

The easy solution was to photograph our model from the other direction.  That gave us the added benefit of have that strong, bright light which was steaming in now from behind the subject create a beautiful accent light on our portrait.

I love it when a portrait comes together.  This image was the product of just the natural light on the scene, but when you find the direction of light, and position your subject to that beautiful soft light, you get a great result!

Camera specs: Canon 7D fitted with 18-200mm IS lens at 100mm, F5.6 @ 1/80 second, ISO 400.  Enjoy!  -David

  1. Great shot! You could also take a shot during sundown just to enhance more the lighting.
