I have a shoot tomorrow photographing two grown women for their headshots (don't ask, it was a favor for a friend). Since I haven't done anything like that in, oh, ever, I made Mr. Apple come out and model for me. We walked around getting rained on while I looked for scenic parts of the neighborhood to use for backdrops. At the end, we returned home and I noticed that there was particularly lovely soft diffuse light in our carport of all places. I made him pose and I put the back (dirty, ugly) wall out of focus and I think it really looks like a soft daylight studio shot. I can make a studio out of my carport! This was a revelation. Also a good reminder that I really know what I'm doing. I can take a good portrait almost anywhere.
