Night Portraits | Greeley/Northern Portrait Photography
I love to play (photography-wise) at night, and several weeks ago I was able to sneak off and play a little.
My goal was to have the sun setting with the mountains in the background, and some cool clouds. We headed out a little West of town, though not far enough. The mountains seemed too small for what I was visualizing, but we were losing light so had to make do. Most of the country around here is fenced in – private – bummer. Luckily we stumbled across the farmer whose property I was eyeing. He and his precious dog Maddie happened to be out on a four-wheeler, so I was able to ask permission. He let us drive out to the back of his property to capture these images.
I kept the lighting simple. Really simple. I had brought my new umbrella to try out, but the winds were amazingly strong and ended up knocking it over, even with a pretty heavy weight on the stand. Thankfully I got the bends out! So I ended up using just a diffused, off-camera flash.
I’d like to get out there, a little more West next time, to see what other cool images we can come up with!
