Ambient Light For the Win

May 30, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

As a wedding photographer in Toronto and often doing portrait work such as headshots, family portraits, maternity, infant and corporate photoshoots, I'm always looking for ambient light.

Interior designers know the power that ambient light can create in determining the mood of a room.  It's not different from a photo.  Whenever I run into light that is unique, it's a must have for me.

This shot was done at Niagara Falls at night.  The spot lights behind them was used to light up the photo and then afterwards I used the light as front light, it created a great mood to the shots.

What's important is to be able to tell the story.  This couple had been changing in and out of dresses and shirts and I knew how Important it was to capture what they were wearing. It was also their first time to Niagara falls and to remember this moment is key.  There were very little cars on the road since it was closer to midnight and the moisture and splash from the falls created a slight reflection on the ground which bounced the spot lights nicely.

Being conscious of these moments gives you a great feeling after a shoot.  This moment happened once and to be able to capture it is simply magical.
