In the following video, I show you how I photograph a portrait outdoors, dealing with the elements of nature.

Here we go from shooting in direct sunlight to taking the person into deep shade.

In this video I explain:

How I go about photographing a portrait/model in the shade.

How I position the model to face into the wind.

What settings I use, and why

How I get that shallow depth of field

Notice the shallow depth of field I used where Milly is in-focus and the rocks in the background are out-of-focus. I explain exactly how I do this in this video. Remember the aperture training video in my essential skills video series, this is where we apply those techniques.
