Planning a themed portrait shoot in your dream destination is a wonderful way to create new content.

Recently, I traveled to Grand Teton National Park and took photos with some close friends. Our project consisted of taking various photos of models who were dressed up to fit with the environment. Because we were in the Tetons, it was fitting for our themed models to be dressed as Native Americans and hikers.

These photos were all taken with natural light. It was a bright day and with the sunlight hitting our models directly in the face we needed to take advantage of the light and shadows. In this light we used reflectors to bounce light onto our models faces. This is a simple way to enhance your themed portraits without bringing along a lot of equipment.
