Behind a Portrait Session

Here is a recent portrait I did. I am very happy with what we got! Yes that swan was really there… Here is how we got the photo. Linda and her son were were near the edge of the water. The boy was sitting on a stool Mom standing behind him. It was about 3:00 in the afternoon on this mid April very cloudy day. The sun was coming from up high and behind them, but very diffused because of the heavy cloud cover. I had a light set about 6 feet away from them about 6 feet in the air off to their left and just a bit in front of them. The light was going through an umbrella. See the diagram I made. Sorry about the terrible drawing…
