Great photographers have a knack for finding wonderful locations with beautiful light. When the light is magic you don’t need a lot of extra lighting modifiers and more time can be utilized making magical pictures of fabulous models.
Magical places, change with the time of day, the seasons of the year and the weather. When you find one of these places consider the time of day and make sure that the duration of the magical light is long enough to complete the shooting of your idea.
Magic is Magic and it is heard to explain. I love shooting beauty and fashion, so I am always hunting magical locations with the quality of light that I think is magical. What I consider magic, a light that makes the model look beautiful, other people my consider very muggle ( a la - Harry Potter).
In this photo, a wonderful magical location for beauty, the light is coming from the rear, a dark green background, and a ton of fill coming from the crushed white shell on the ground in front of the model. For me, this is pure magic.
