Fall is one of my favorite times of year for all kinds of landscape photography, but it turns out to be a great time for portrait photography as well. In Rochester, most of the trees look the same from late spring to early fall, but for a brief time in the fall, the trees erupt with color and beautiful backdrops are all over. I’m pleased to share with you some of my photos with Ryan from this fall.
A few months ago, Ashley transferred to the Apple Store. She’s always positive and fun to work with, so I was excited when she agreed to come along for a photography shoot the other evening.
Photographing in Late Evening
We both worked until 6:30, and had to separately eat, change and grab the camera gear. I also picked up Alicia and she came along as my assistant for the evening. The sun was already surprisingly low in the sky for mid summer, yet I knew we’d make something from the light that was left. I had brought all of my fastest lenses along and I wasn’t afraid to push the ISO if I had to.
Recently I took some senior portraits of Greg, a football player and high school senior at Wayne Central. He and his family met me at Webster Park on Lake Ontario as the sun was getting low in the sky. Overall the lighting worked out really well. We had a variety of backgrounds to work with from the lake and shoreline to a wooden footbridge and rocky pier.
