Grand Teton Portrait Photography
While on a visit to Grand Teton National Park I decided to do some portrait photography with some of my fellow photographers. We found a couple locations and took turns posing, sometimes with props or products clearly visible to practice a more commercial style of photography. Grand Teton National Park makes for an incredible backdrop, and we had really great conditions for taking photos. The park had a light dusting of snow across the mountains, while the areas we were at were still green. This created a lot of good color contrast in the backgrounds. We also had some beautiful sunshine, and together with a reflector this made for some glowing portraits. The trickiest part was probably finding the balance of how much light to shine on the subjects. Too little and they appear underexposed at worst and deemphasized at best. Too much and they can either be overexposed or it simply looks unrealistic and artificial. There’s a careful balance to be found. Take a look at some of the results below!
