Shooting before Golden Hour

The latest adventure took place last week with the amazingly talented and beautiful Danielle Blaquera. I love collaborating with other creatives, because the ideas seem to have a certain fluidity that creates amazing photos. And lucky for me, Danielle is an seasoned and experimental make up artist and hair stylist. I think it’s safe to say her look is on pointe, her eyebrows are on fleek, and anything else the kids are saying these days.


Before I babble on, let’s get to the point. As you can tell from Danielle’s portfolio, she is a very busy woman, as am I. What do you do, when you don’t have a studio and you can’t necessarily fit all your shots into golden hour? you find SHADE. Keep this in mind when your choosing a location for your outside shoot. When you have shade, you have the ability to get a nice exposure, even in midday sun. Find a cave, find a shady passage way, get behind a lifeguard tower, etc. Check out some of our shots, below. Let me know what you think.
