I’ve seen this idea in other photo, though usually it’s fabric attached to a backdrop stand. This is wrapping paper attached to a fence. I really like this— I’m looking forward to (hopefully) trying this technique more in the future.
I’m often jealous of European photographers who have access to amazing locations like castles and henges that are not Stonehenge. And for good reason. But then I remind myself that the portrait isn’t about the location, it’s about the person. If you do that part right, then an empty schoolyard can become magical
What does it mean to be a natural light photographer? It means that the brick wall of the underpass near the parking garage of the historic city center you are supposed to be shooting in ends up being one of your best locations of the day. Whoot!
