Charlotte Hamilton - Chicago Photographer and Filmmaker Elizabeth McQuern

Getting the light right is so important for a good photo. One of my favorite tricks is to shoot during the golden hours, at sunrise and sunset.
In this photo, I was with the lovely Charlotte Hamilton, around sunset, once again at Loyola Park, perhaps my favorite spot for outdoor photography.
I wanted to get that lovely backlit look, hair aglow, wherein my subject looks practically angelic. It took a minute or two for us to get ourselves in just the right position to get this effect, but once we settled in, we nailed it.
