We help set the scene for what you want to shoot
A perfect backdrop for photos of any type, there is nothing more unobtrusive—yet endearing—as a rustic barn. South 40 has several options for your next photo shoot. Capture the beautiful natural light and rough texture outside, and then venture inside to see how the soft light inside can make colors pop! Add a few quaint props and you have a gorgeous setting which puts all the focus on your subjects while bringing life to your background. And don’t forget the doors—there is no better way to highlight a beautiful bride or cute family (and control harsh light) than a rugged barn door! If you are unsure of how to best utilize our barns, let us help you with advice on umbrellas, flashes and diffusers. Browse through some of our favorite photos of the South 40 barns below:
