Tips For Shooting In Bright Sunlight

Posted on: 7 May 2010

It’s summer time and that means vacations, swimming and playing in the sun. As a photographer sunlight can create opportunities for learning. Digital Photography School has five tips that may be quite helpful. Briefly they are:

  1. Pay attention. Be aware of where the sun is coming from and where it’s not.
  2. Utilize what shade you do have.
  3. Catch lights. Make sure your subjects are facing the sun.
  4. Think background. Be aware of your surroundings and realize that some sunlight may make for a nice background when blown out.
  5. Bokeh. The quality of the part of the photo that is not in sharp focus can work nicely for you.

Be sure to read through the article and check out the sample photos.
