You don’t need a ton of gear to get awesome photos. Case in point, this amazing wedding photo. The big tip here – use natural reflectors!

While lots of people ask me if this picture is Photoshopped, it is, indeed, only lightly edited. How did I capture it?

Using natural reflectors is an inexpensive and effective way to get a lot of light on a subject. In this instance, I was able to use the concrete walkway to bounce the sunlight onto all of the ladies in the photo and set them apart from the brilliant blue sky behind them.

That contrast is what gives the picture and almost unreal quality. And what equipment did I use beside my camera? Nothing!
