I went for the "National Geographic" type shot here with Victoria. I don't mean it in the sense of the level of professionalism their photographer have, but I mean that it is a shot of someone in their true home environment and their face tells quite a story. What do you think her story is?
The shot came out nice considering we were simply testing a custom light reflector. We built a simple custom reflector out of aluminum and cardboard and I totally recommend it if you need something quick to get the job done. Remember, the sun is your KEY light. Then you can use reflectors as your fill lights.
This picture it totally natural.
