Using natural light and a bit of reflection

The following shots were taking with natural light, well actually the last one (with the sun reflection) was a shot with added strobe.
Now one of the tips I want to share with this blogpost is looking for location.


Often we walk past location that look 100% uninteresting for our photoshoots, however if you look a little bit better/longer or, as I often call it, with your photography eyes some locations can be really nice. I always love reflections and windows are great for this, however I also love structure so older buildings are a true treat for me and I love using them to shoot against. This building actually is on the other side of the road from our studio and we often use it during our workshops or sessions (It always helps to have good relations with your neighbors :D)

    Hi Frank, if you work with natural light, how do you measure the light?
    As if the sun is your main lightsource, so using yoour lightmeter towards the sun?
    Btw, these photos are proving (as you said in your last Doorhof is always open video) how to create beautiful photos just in your own area and with no strobe
