Get ready for those summer snapshots

May 31, 2017

The grass is green, the sky is blue and it has finally stopped raining. The kids will be out of school in no time. Are you ready for all of those summer snapshot moments? Here are a few quick tips to make those summer photos pop. 


1-Shoot in the shade. The sun comes up earlier and is up longer. Because of that summer offers some pretty harsh lighting. Find yourself a shady spot or make  you own. The light will be softer, shadows will be less harsh or disappear completely and the contrast will be more flattering. 




2-Golden hour. The hour before sunset is one of my favorite. The light is warmer and more scattered because it is diffused by the atmosphere. 


3-Blue hour and beyond. Blue hour is the period of twilight early in the dawn each morning and late in the dusk each evening, when the sun has dipped below the horizon, but residual, indirect sunlight remains casting a blue hue. It is also a great time for night photography.



4-Tell a story. Summer is a great time for parties, flowers,  hanging out by the pool or the beach and escaping the heat with indoor escapades. Use that to your advantage. Draw your viewers in by telling them a story. 


 5. Use a flash. Using your flash can help reduce shadows, especially in close up shots. 


And don't forget to have fun!
