When you first walk into a restaurant, you wouldn’t necessarily think this is a worthy location to capture the perfect shot of your baby. Yet, there are props, colored walls, maybe even bright, orange curtains waiting to be used in your picture taking! When Brian and I teach our CONFIDENCE photography workshops, part of building women’s confidence is showing them how to take great photos in the most unlikely places.
There isn’t anything empowering about learning to take great photos in beautiful settings with perfect lighting. But if you can capture the perfect shot of your baby or friend’s baby in public with less than perfect surroundings–you can shoot anywhere! The first and foremost step is to find the best light. Once you’ve found the light, the possibilities are endless!
