Take a look at the two photos of Kelly below. Both were taken at the studio when she came in with her family for a photo session. The first one was take with diffused natural light coming from a large window to camera left. The second one was take with flash in a large softbox directly behind the camera. Each photo has a different look to it. The natural light one is softer and a bit “dreamy”, the softbox one is much cleaner and “crisper”
I like both but for different reasons. Which do you prefer?
