Dramatic Outdoor Yoga Portraiture

One warm summer afternoon, my mom agreed to model for me. She is a yoga instructor and is in fantastic shape. I wanted to do some yoga photography, but with some dramatic lighting and outdoors. We were on one of the side trails of Mt Tabor and I had my lightstand and umbrella balanced precariously on the uneven ground. I was so pleased that the photos came out just like I’d envisioned!

Phone capture to show behind the scenes and how the natural light appeared at the time! How fun to manipulate light.
