The 5 Biggest Perks of Natural Light Photography

February 8, 2017


As a photographer, I work primarily outdoors or inside with tons of windows for natural light to enter. There are some challenges with that such as unpredictable weather, but there are many more perks.


1. Choosing your own location

          Clients are able to be a little more comfortable and relaxed at a location they choose. It is a great

          experience for me to find new locations and give the client an opportunity to have extra sentimental

          value in choosing a location that has special meaning for them.


2. No light equipment to carry around and set up

          For photo sessions, it's just me and my camera. No extra equipment gives me the ability to move

          around more and set up photos that look natural.


3. Spontaneity

          When I'm at a location, I love to just walk around and see what I find.-different textures, a cool prop,

          interesting backgrounds. You never know what you'll find! It also gives the client an opportunity to

          make suggestions-it's their moments being captured!


4. Flexibility

          Natural light gives you some flexibility with shadows and backlighting. It allows you to be more

          creative with the setting and the lighting and the way you position the subject. 


5. The client is the focus

          When you don't have to worry about extra equipment, you can truly focus on making the client feel

          comfortable and have them be the center of the session.


Like I said, the perks outweigh the challenges! The proof is in the photo.
