Want to take your photos from pretty-darn-good to mind-blowingly fantastic? It's not impossible, and the best part is, you don't need to spend thousands of dollars on equipment and training. Here are a few tips that can get you on your way, and the best part is, they're all free!
1. The Golden Hour(s)
New clients are always shocked when I tell them we'll be shooting at sundown. Won't the photos be better, they ask, in bright sunlight? Nope. Bright mid-day sun causes harsh shadows and lots of squinting. Golden hour (the hour at dawn and sundown) is incredibly gorgeous and flattering, so if at all possible, shoot then!
