Honestly, it really depends on the direction and amount of ambient light. I dont do anything formulaic. I know that doesnt help much. But Im pretty loose on my creative process. Sometimes it needs fill. Sometimes I want backlighting. I guess Im moody. :suspicion:
Taken at Sandy Hook restaurant on Pine Island, FL. I drive past this location frequently and have been wanting to shoot it for a long time. Finally had the time and weather to give it a run this morning.
