One of the great benefits of being a photographer, especially a "location" photographer, is the opportunity to make a living and be outdoors at the same time. Granted, many location shoots can be in corporate offices or noisy factories, but sometimes the weather gods are with you. That would be the case for a recent photo shoot I did on the west side of Michigan for a synthetic lumber distributor (marina decking). It was a perfect temperature day with sunshine and beautiful cumulus clouds for our marina backdrop.
This photograph was accomplished using the sun as our key source of light, obviously, but with a simple strobe chimera for fill, just out of camera view, we were able to avoid too much shadow on our talent's face. Not all location shoots have as ideal weather conditions as this one, but that great unknown makes on-site photography all that more interesting!
