Hi Chris, just came across your blog today and I’m lnivog it! I’m shooting a wedding on Friday and it’s at 3p .not a lot of shade. (This is my first outdoor, mid-day wedding.) I went to the venue last week to do some test shots. Really struggling with the bright sun. I’m finding it a challenge to try and keep the subjects properly exposed without blowing out the background (as in sample photo #2 above). Do you meter for the background or the subject? I’d prefer not to use flash but I think I’m going to have to in order to fill in shadows that or I may use a reflector. Any advice is appreciated! Thanks for all you do in helping us to become better photographers!
Chris, thanks for the tip. Gotta bring msleyf back to that basic photo class I got in college, where we didn’t use flash at all! Your enthusiasm for natural lighting is refreshing. And it’s great to see you use a photo of my friend Lynn to explain this, because that’s how I got connected to your website in the first place since I was a guest at her wedding in April!Again, props for the beautiful images, I hope I can get some equally great ones for an upcoming new england fall engagement photo session I’m doing!
