Not everyone has the luxury of having plenty of space in their home for a photoshoot or windows large enough for photographers in natural light. Without having to leave the comfort of your home, an option for some would be to set up their studio outside, weather permitting, of course.
Coming from Irene Rudnyk, she takes us behind the scenes of her recent photoshoot, which takes place in her garden. If you have a shed in your backyard, you can even turn it into a studio, as shown in this video.
Rudnyk’s light source for both shoots is one of the biggest sources any photography can use, the sun. It also uses a large reflector to add fill light if needed. We are shown two different sessions, where one is shot on a bright sunny day and the other on a cloudy day, where the light is diffused. It’s a great way to see how Rudnyk handles the two lighting scenarios differently to get his results. Throughout the video, Rudnyk does a great job sharing his reasoning for any changes in the scene and some posing tips.
