Best 100 Fearless Awards of 2023

The bride and I were walking into a parking garage to take some portraits when I saw the light casting onto the parking lot floor. I instantly knew I wanted to use this light, but I struggled for a bit trying to find a way to truly showcase it. I first tried dragging over a large trash can and balancing on top of it in order to show everything, but even that wasn't high enough. I then realized that there was a section of wall in the garage that I could climb into and then sort of shimmy my way across in order to get a good angle. This idea ended up working better because it got me high enough to show the entire pattern of light, but it also got me into a position where I was capturing the light from an angle I would not have initially been drawn to use.
