Natural Light Portraits with Ann


No Flash?

We thought it a little cheeky setting up lots of lights in the Doubletree Hilton’s cafe bar – so we did a few shots with natural light, well a mix of light from outside and the halogen bulbs inside.

Fast Lens

Most of these are taken with the Canon 85mm F1.8 lens, which is great in low light as it’s a very “bright” lens, but also allows decent working distance (so you’re no in your sitter’s face) and blurs the background out like a dream.

A Different Look

Pretty much all of my portraits use flash in one way or another – mainly to make them a little more dramatic and distinctive. But this natural look is pretty effective too.
