Natural lighting – why I love it

Natural lighting has aesthetic appeal.

The flattering, soft light is simply stunning for skincare and beauty brands. Natural light, especially during the golden hour (early morning and late afternoon), provides a soft, diffused light that minimises harsh shadows and creates a more flattering look for products. It enhances textures and colors without washing them out.

Natural lighting also offers warmth and vibrancy that artificial light photography often lacks. It can make colors pop and textures appear more inviting, leading to more visually appealing product photos.

It is also super versatile. Natural light offers a wide range of possibilities depending on the time of day, weather conditions, and location. This allows for greater creativity and flexibility in capturing different moods and aesthetics.

There’s nothing more gorgeous that the soft diffused light of golden hour!

Why natural lighting is always my go-to

I love natural lighting. I prefer the way it looks. It’s my personal style and I’ve been utilising it for 15 years. I opt for natural lighting over studio lighting; not because I don’t want to invest in the equipment – because I adore the creativity entailed in manipulating natural lighting.

It truly is a skill and something I have worked with over time. I honestly love the challenge it presents and the end product that I capture.

When thinking about natural light photography for user generated content, it adds a level of authenticity and relatability. Consumers are drawn to images that feel authentic and unstaged, and natural light helps create this sense of realism.

My portrait photography and all outdoor photography is also shot exclusively with natural lighting ideally trying to avoid the harsh shadows of midday light / full sun and shoot in the morning or afternoon.

The benefits of natural light photography.

Many photographers shoot in an artificially lit studio using camera flash, especially for beauty and skincare product photography. This artificial lighting can result in cookie-cutter images with harsh light that look similar, especially from brand to brand. As mentioned earlier using product photos where lighting conditions vary gives intrigue and excitement to your social media feed. This allows for best results for your marketing efforts, and the end result: more sales!

Overall, natural light photography offers a wide range of benefits for brands, especially those in the skincare and beauty industries. By embracing a beautiful natural light source, I can create stunning visuals that are both aesthetically pleasing and authentically engaging for your audience.

I’ve spent years mastering natural light when shooting and it’s become my signature style. If your Australian natural skincare or beauty brand is looking to stand out on socials, I think it’s time we talked! 

I manipulate natural soft light and create stunning photos to make brands stand out. If that’s something you need, get in contact and let’s make magic in photography form.
