Taming the Scene

Big open spaces outside can be pretty intimidating, but when the lighting’s just right, and the main subject’s positioned in the best spot, a really beautiful picture can come out of it. Some of these shots were taken in the middle of an open field with the plains spreading out into the background. I made sure to position the family in such a way that they would be cushioned—not overwhelmed—by the impressive background. I always want to keep in mind the importance of considering scenery, even as if it were an extra member of the family I shoot.
