On overcast days, it is easy to photograph children or adults illuminated by the sun. However, on a clear day, it becomes a problem. If you have your subject face into the bright sun, he or she end up squinting and having harsh shadows under their eyes. To remedy this:
· position your subject in the shade or have the subject's back to the sun.
· set your flash to the fill position or to the position where it will fire each time you press the shutter button.
· hold your viewfinder's circle or rectangle on your subject, press the shutter button half-way down.
· Recompose your subject in the viewfinder and finish pressing the shutter button.
Using the above tips will improve your mid-day direct light photography by eliminating the squinting and harsh shadows.
The next time you take direct mid-day photos, use the above tips to capture the photos.
