Pic of the Week – 20090711

I just received this unsolicited note from Travis in Tullahoma:

You do some excellent work… You’ve got a really natural sense of light, especially in your candid outdoor shots. In a controlled studio, if you don’t get it right, well you just shouldn’t be a photographer… but in the great outdoors reality is harder than you make it look. Your online portfolio is very inviting.

So I thought an outdoor shot would be appropriate to go with it. This image was taken at noon in the middle of an open field. However you don’t see any evidence of  hard shadows from overhead light. God gives us great light to work with … but we have to know how to… and take the time to… modify that light to make our subjects look their best.
