Keeping it natural: Utilizing natural light to capture beautiful exterior and interior portraits


posted Wednesday, June 29, 2016 at 12:50 PM EST


Portrait photographer Damien Lovegrove has made a successful career taking beautiful and flattering portraits. He's a Fuji X-Photographer and has been working extensively with Fujifilm to create a number of helpful portrait tutorials.

In the videos below, Lovegrove uses a Fuji X-Pro2 as well as an X-T1 with a wide variety of lenses including the XF 23mm f/1.4R, XF 35mm f/1.4R, XF 56mm f/1.2R and XF 50-140mm f/2.8R lenses. I've been able to use the XF 50-140mm f/2.8R on numerous occasions and that is a fantastic piece of glass.

Lovegrove's tutorials run the gamut of many different natural light portrait scenarios and include tips for photographing an interior portrait using natural light, early morning outdoor environmental shots and his latest one covers shooting a portrait by a tree. All of the tutorials below focus on how to best utilize natural light and your surroundings to create compelling and beautiful images.
