Rim Lighting

Photography TipsHave you ever tried to use rim lighting? It's a great thing to know if you haven't learned yet, and here's a short refresher if you already know. When there's a light on the far side of someone, the light leaks through right around their head illuminating their hair or hat. Sometimes the line can be so crisp that it looks as though they're being cut out. Rim light is beautiful, and it adds a ton of visual interest to a photo. The real win here is taking an extra second to try and look around your environment for some kind of rim lighting. Don't settle for the light you're given, find better light. And also plan to show up during golden hour, instead of trying to do photoshop later and add in something fake.

Envisioning Before Shooting

Why do you need to envision your shot EVEN BEFORE you pick up your camera?

  • Michelangelo and the statue DavidĀ –when you’re carving with marble you don’t have a second chance
  • He had to know what he was aiming for. So when he took something off, he knew ahead of time that it was the exact right thing
  • I waste less space on my cards when I imagine the shot before I take the shot.
  • Don’t depend on spray and pray.
  • Crop the shot before you in your mind. Then put your camera up to your eye and match that vision
  • Don’t be afraid to take time. Take 10-15 seconds to just think and envision. It’s important and it helps your client get the best images.
