Nikon D810 with Nikon 70-200mm f2.8G; ISO 100, f2.8, 1/800s @ 175mm

Continuing my series on the beauty of natural light. On a lovely warm day with the sun out you need to capitalize on that light. Here I used nothing more than a Lastolite reflector to bounce light back onto the subject. In a case like this, the reflector actually becomes the key light with the sun acting as a back/rim light. A slight bit of overexposure – very subtle and that warm glow gives a beautiful summer shot. An excellent C-curve pose from the model and you have the makings of a great photograph. Natural light at its finest!
