The Hedberg Family Portraits

This cute family’s photos were taken along the Colorado River in Silt, CO at Ruby River Ranch. Their outfits are a great example of what to wear to a family photo shoot. The outfits are coordinated by a common color scheme!

Portrait Lighting Class

I will be doing a Photography class in March for the Silt Library on how to better light your portraits. I have a general outline of what I will be discussing, but as I start preparing for this class I would like your input on what would be most beneficial to you all. I will go over a few important basics of lighting i.e. the color, quality, and direction and we will discuss how to use things we have around the house or outside (mainly the sun) to improve the photographs we take of our families. I will also give a few quick tips on how to take better portrait photographs.

Please comment below if there are any specific questions you have related to lighting in photography or taking portraits that you would like me to discuss. This can anything about using the sun, reflectors, your flash, settings, etc. I’m just curious on what people are interested in learning about. If you are not here in western Colorado or won’t be able to attend still post any questions, ideas below and I will respond back to you or do a blog post answering the question. Thanks! I look forward to hearing your questions and ideas.
