Evening light portraits

Posted on by Jason

I’ve been experimenting again… Using our youngest as a model I ventured out in to the jungle (garden) one sunny evening as the sun was dropping behind Hope Mountain. We’ve replaced the Sigma 50mm with the Canon 50L and I wanted to see how much better it is in a strongly backlit situation – about the only scenario where the Sigma was lacking a little.

Sure enough the contrast is waaay better and it holds the colours fantastically well.

I also wanted to shoot a little darker and use that contrast to create a moodier portrait in the golden light – it worked pretty well!
