Natural Outdoor Light Makes For Great Portraits

When we do our outdoor portraits, we like to work with natural sunlight as much as possible. Natural sunlight provides us with soft shadows, warm colors, and flattering highlights on faces. These elements  help us capture the best of you. 

Outdoor headshots tend to have an easygoing vibe to them. Professional portraits taken in the natural outdoor light have a fresher and gentler feel than those taken indoors. Natural light is warmer and more welcoming than indoor lighting, which can feel more stiff and clinical.

Why Choose The Outdoors for Your Headshot?

When you get your headshots made outdoors, they are one-of-a-kind. No two outdoor headshots are exactly the same. Different locations, natural colorful backgrounds, lighting, weather, all come together to make your outdoor portraits unique.

The outdoor setting can help communicate your story and place your photograph in a context your customers and clients can understand. Your photo will stand out among the hundreds of other corporate headshots taken in studios or offices. 

Many people discover that when they use outdoor headshot photography, they are able to be more themselves. People tend to feel more at ease and less self-conscious outside compared to a studio setting. When you’re at ease and relaxed in front of the camera, it will show in your images. Outdoor headshots help you be your authentic self.
