Photo Tip Friday-Tip # 28

When taking a portrait outdoors, be mindful of the light. If the sun is low the lighting on the face will be flat. If the sun is high there will be dark shadows under the nose and eyes. Some ways to solve this problem are:

  • Waiting until you have a an overcast day that produces diffused sunlight 
  • Wait for a cloud to cover the sun or move the subject to the shade. If you decide to put the person under a tree, look out for the speckled effect that can be caused by the sun shining through the branches.
