Summer is the perfect time to bum around under the sun. To do nothing but explore the great outdoors or just hang out around the house or in front of the television with the AC on: it’s your pick. To head to the beach or the pool and get a tan. Of course, it’s also a great time to practice natural light portraiture with arguably the best light source you could ever have; the sun.
The Lake by Elizaveta Porodina, a Munich-based fashion and fine art photographer, is a series of natural light portraits featuring a woman in a bright red swimsuit splashing around at the shallow end of a lake. It easily brings to mind those warm summer days spent idly under the sun and keeping cool in bodies of water.
