babes & natural light


Most of my shooting career I've been a natural light shooter documenting outdoor sporting events. And while I've received a degree in Media Arts and my dad and brother own a lighting design company, I myself, do not have any technical experience with lights or lighting... Needless to say, shooting with lights intimidates me. They make me overthink everything and get my nerves going every time.

Over the last few years, I've made an effort to take on different sessions and new gigs to broaden the scope of my skills and work. I continue to step outside of my comfort zone and try new things because really, what's the worst that's going to happen? I fail. I learn something new. I create an image I wasn't expecting. Failing sucks, but I assure you I wont be making the same mistake again.

So here I am again, back at Legacy Fitness in Arizona for an impromptu workout photos session with 2 of their newest trainers wishing I had a brought a light with me, when out of the corner of my eye, I catch a pocket of light as another trainer walks outside. Of course, the back door!!

The light that shined through the doorway didn't hit a large area, but it was enough to get these fit babes in to crush a few poses in. From ISO 3200 to ISO 250, I was much happier with the outcome.

{ NIKON D4; NIKON 24-70; ISO: 250 Aperture: 2.8 Shutter: 1/3200 }

So great, I saw some natural light and took some photos. I'm proud of myself for being aware and resourceful. There's so much to learn and hope I continue to never settle.
