Sunset Portrait Photography in Scotland

It has been a summer more notable for the rain than sun.

Creating an exotic sunset glow in Scotland can be a challenge. Here I used off camera lighting to create an atmospheric ambience, green blue filters on the flash and balanced for skin tones. Neutral density filters helped reduce the brightness of the sky and enabled me to through the landscape out of focus to give the portrait more prominence. Lighting on outdoors location will make portraits a lot more dramatic in appearance.
