    Tomorrow is supposed to be mid 90's and humid as hell. I have a shoot scheduled for a girl and her sister. Their mom wants portraits done. Same girl I did engagement photos for.

    Pic of her. No pic of sister.

    Hopefully it cools down by 6pm when we do the photos. Luckily it will be by the lake too. But near a golf course. Any tips for the portraits?
    Perhaps an opportunity to fuck around with my ring light? Meh maybe not. I think these should be more formal. Something a parent would want to hang in the living room above the fire place.

    Nix the ringlight for a nice portrait. look for a shady spot to place your bride. Use off camera light set either above the camera about 2' and a reflector below (clamshell lighting) or set your key light above and about 45 degrees to one side. Use a modifier like a soft box or umbrella on the key light. Adding a rim light opposite the key light is a nice touch. Two rim lights are even better.

    Oh....and bring lots of bottled water and maybe a clean towel.
