“I did a Boho Valentine’s session that was bright and colorful. My subjects were two sisters who were giggly and full of energy. Their mom wanted some ‘nice’ photos of the girls together, but also some fun ones.”
Elise’s Photography Tip:
I put up several layers of sheer curtains on the windows and set the bed just in front of it. This provided a beautiful and soft backlight. The light coming in from the window also reflected off the white foam core boards that I put up on each side of me at a 45 degree angle, acting as giant reflectors.
If you create a similar lighting setup, you’ll get a soft, clean backlight that is reflected back onto the subjects.
Elise used a Canon XTi with a Canon 24mm 2.8 lens and a Canon 50mm 1.8 lens to capture these images.
