Lighting and Exposure Techniques for Outdoor and Location Portrait Photography Cover Image


Portraiture is a complex craft, made exponentially more difficult by the variable lighting, cluttered backgrounds, and equipment limitations of location shoots. This guide leads beginners and professionals alike through all the technical and creative challenges of this increasingly popular art form. Subjects covered include choosing film, picking lightweight and durable equipment, calculating exposures, using the Zone System, and making the best of ambient light. Tips and techniques are reinforced with full-color examples, accompanied by advice on posing and composition.
