Studio lighting on location.
The combination of natural and artificial light on a location shoot can boost the visual impact an image. An overcast sky is perfect for even light portraiture but adding location studio lighting can give an otherwise flat portrait an added punch by seperating the subject from the background. Likewise, contrast between highlights and shadows from hard light can be reduced by adding soft fill from a strobe fixed with a light modifier.
