Learn the fundamentals of working with natural light on location. He takes you through his process of identifying the light in the location, analysing the quality and direction and then positioning and posing the subject to best use the light where it is available.

Mark continues to guide you through how he breaks down a location to use the available light in his location portraiture. Mark now move through into the main hall of the castle, again using the large windows along one side to provide the main light but also using available lights within the room to provide separation and depth. Finally, he heads into the castles main function room, again utilising the large windows as his key source, but also varying exposure choices to provide variety with wider environmental portraits as well as a few silhouettes.

Equipment: Canon 5DMkIII, Canon 50mm F1.4, Sekonic L-478DR-EL
