It’s prom time once again and my sister-in-law wanted some portraits taken, so I was happy to help. It ended up being a nicely overcast day so I didn’t have to compete too much with the sun and it made my day much easier.
Last week I got a text from a friends little brother asking if I could take some pictures of him and his girlfriend before their prom. I agreed, we set up a time and I started to pack the gear. We were going to meet a little after 4, so I knew the afternoon sun was going to be rough. As with all the prom-goer’s in our town, they wanted the pictures at a local park area. Almost all of the area was exposed to the bright sun and there was very little shade. I felt fairly well prepared for this since I had a plan going into it. Here is the first shot in a very harsh mix of shade and beams of light coming down through the tree’s overhead.
