By balancing the light I was able to capture an epic portrait.

Process:

There were a few things I did to learn how to balance the light. The first thing I did was set my camera settings so that the subject was exposed and the background was blown out and bright. This is how a lot of natural light photographers take their photos. The second thing I did was make sure the background was exposed, but this made it so that the subject was dark. The last step was to make so that the subject was exposed as well as the background. I did this by balancing the light using an auxiliary light source. The three photos below were the steps to learning how to balance the light.
