Making Sunshine

So what do you do when you want a nice sunny day but it is cold, cloudy and even raining from time to time?

This is another photo from my recent shoot with Emily. Perhaps she was being a bit optimistic bringing sunglasses, but where there is a will there is a way!

As you can see, the setup was actually very simple. Just one light with a 21cm reflector placed just to the right of camera. It was on a stand and raised just about as high as I could get it. I asked Emily to stand close to the background and then adjusted the angle of the light so it was pointing directly at her. That gave the reflection in her sunglasses and nice sharp shadows on the background.

Take care
