All portraits done with natural light are not equal. Too many photographers just accept the existing ambient light and end up with light that has no direction, lacking three dimensionality, or just flat light.
So, how does Jerry take natural light to the next level? Simply, he uses the Subtractive Lighting Technique. This is the technique where you simply block light from one side of the scene using a hand-held black gobo (or flag) for individuals and with groups you use non-reflective natural features like trees, bushes, or rocks, creating a shadow on that side.
This lighting style is far more natural looking than additive lighting (using flash or reflectors) because it organically creates directional lighting in a flat light environment.
