Natural Light Portraits – A Walk with Megan

I recently photographed local model Megan Pickersgill at Brunet Park in Lasalle, ON.

When shooting natural light portraits, I prefer to forgo artificial light. I look for slightly overcast or cloudy skies, or natural areas of open shade on days when the sun is not diffused by clouds or a tree canopy.

For this shoot, I used no light modifiers or flash.  I worked angles and exposure to get the best light on Megan’s pretty face.

The accompanying images were captured with my Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L lens. The 70-200mm has amazing depth of field and amazing bokeh. I find that the green forest turns into a painterly looking, lush green background when shooting wide open at f/2.8 with a focal length of 200mm.
