This page shows my collection of portraits from Steph Lagera.
In this photograph, we see Steph standing gracefully in front of a backdrop of lush green trees, illuminated by the warm golden light of the sunset. Steph is dressed in a casual outfit.
Steph’s natural beauty is enhanced by the soft glow of the setting sun, which casts a warm, flattering light over her face and hair. Her long, wavy hair falls loosely around her shoulders, and her striking features, including her high cheekbones and full lips, are accentuated by the natural lighting.
Despite the casual nature of her outfit, Steph exudes an air of elegance and poise, standing with one hand resting on her hip and the other loosely hanging by her side. Her relaxed posture suggests a sense of ease and contentment as if she is fully present in the moment and at peace with the world around her.
The backdrop of the trees and the warm glow of the sunset create a serene and tranquil atmosphere, adding to the overall sense of peace and harmony conveyed by the photograph.
In sum, this photograph captures the natural beauty of Steph in a casual setting, perfectly illuminated by the golden light of a sunset. The sense of peace and tranquility created by the natural lighting and backdrop of trees serves to enhance the already radiant beauty of the subject.
I have used the following to achieve these shots:
- Nikon D750 is a very capable full-frame camera that I use in wedding events due to its superb low-light performance
- Nikon AF 80-200 f/2.8 lens, a top pro zoom in its time but still provides very sharp results and great image quality
For this set, I utilized a mix of available light and one off-camera flash. To soften the light source, I used a Yongnuo flash and a shoot-through umbrella.
I avoided the trees and greenery in the location to prevent them from reflecting on the skin tones.
Steph knows to pose and she’s very used to it. I did not have any difficulty directing her during the shoot which made my job easier. I tweaked the poses to ensure that it flatters the subject.
I post-process my images depending on the theme that I’m shooting. For this concept, I used a bright tone to convey a message of happiness.
