Frame by Frame: Shooting at Night with No Flash

Outfit Idea for Night at the Theatre - The Jordan Brittley Blog




This image was taken at the Little Theatre approximately 30 minutes after the sun had set. Before arriving at the Theatre, I had decided that I would either use a good light source or shoot a lot of grainy black and whites (how lovely for a night at the theatre, right)?! Once I saw that the lights from the theatre lit the sidewalk so well, I was smitten with the idea of illuminated images after dark!


I stood about 5 steps above Larissa and asked her to touch her purse and her hair and tilt her head back. I have worked with Larissa several times before and she rocked the posing (even when it was SO cold outside)! I love styling of the outfit paired with the posing and lighting. Everything just works together.
