In recent years, wedding and portrait photography styles have become increasingly natural and relaxed. As a result, the whole world has become a studio—with images being shot everywhere from abandoned buildings, to beaches, to lamp-lit city streets. The varying light in these locations presents great creative opportunities for photographers, but also significant challenges. In this book, you'll learn how to take control of each situation and walk away with great images.
