Is easy to take beautiful portraits when you are by a lake. The trees and the reflection in the water give an amazing background.

Beautiful Lake Portrait – Situational
Another great thing to do when taking beautiful lake portraits is to add some props to the subject. When you add props to the subject or make them do something the portrait turns into a story which leads to bringing up the emotion in the picture. Here the subject has all his climbing gear but sometimes something simple as a walking stick helps to tell a great story.
Think out of the box, experiment
