Outdoor portraits can be more than a blurry background.


These outdoor epic portraits were taken in Yellowstone and Jackson Hole, Wyoming. To take these portraits it was important to expose the background and the subject. I used an auxiliary light to light up the person I was taking the portrait of. By using the auxiliary light source it allowed me to have my background exposed. One thing I was watchful for was to not have my subject interfere with the background. I also had to make sure there were no awkward shadows on the subject. The outdoor epic portraits were very fun to capture because they allowed me to be creative.
