    Well last weekend I shot this impromptu. No flash.

    Had guy sit in a window seal, window was painted white. Bright outside.


    This is straight out of camera, small crop.

    1. That is a god awful watermark. Consider working with a graphic designer to create branding for yourself including a nice modular watermark.
    2. It's a good natural light portrait, but I would have considered holding a sheet of paper to create a catchlight in the eyes, they look dead as is.

    I like composition but don't like the lighting at all. I feel more light should've been on the face. Feels a bit overexposed, pic is also a bit soft.

    Using no flash is the WIN!

    On Saturday we went through a wedding without firing a flash until the hall which was outdoors and really dark.
