Seek out Soft Light
With Carina Skrobecki
Finding soft light doesn't always mean being outside during that perfect evening glow. There are a lot of ways to find & create soft light by using a few resources already at your disposal. For instance, concrete is a great reflector—it can help soften shadows and harsh mid-day light. You can also ease direct light by obstructing the light behind a tree, a rock, or your subject. I also love shooting by water—it's nature's best tool. You can use it to add interest to an image while creating a nice glow.
