Portraits | Kate - Chicago Fine Art Wedding Photography

Into The Woods

This past week we had the chance to do a portrait shoot with Kate.  For this shoot we had a lot of freedom and really wanted to catch a couple of different lighting styles.  For the largest portion of the session we decided to go for a cleanly defined  "woodsy" look (whatever that means, haha).  That is certainly one thing about photography, sometimes the words don't seem to exist (or perhaps I just don't know them yet?) to describe the frames we create.  Part of me wants to believe that this is one of the main reasons photography exists, to speak with a visual language what cannot be communicated simply with words.  With that being said, for this session we set out to speak with light and shadow, and I feel these images achieve that.  I hope you enjoy the images in this session, as we certainly enjoyed making them!

- Cheers, Jordan

Technically Speaking:  Most of the images where taken using either a small pop-up 24x24 softbox, a 42inch 5-in-1 reflector, or both!  I used a Sigma 70-200mm lens for every shot, except for the Black/White.  The camera settings stayed around an f/2.8 aperture, 1/100 a sec shutter speed, and ISO 2000.
