Golden Hour Fashion Portraits

Shadows vs. Natural Light

When using natural light, Sal has to be very aware of where he is taking the photo. If he isn’t mindful of his positioning, he will cast a shadow on his subject, which is not good. Golden hour makes for beautiful pictures, but unless you can understand where you need to be positioned, it can be your worst enemy.
