Have your model face the sun if you're not using reflectors or flash, etc.

Best to shoot the last couple of hours of the day and shoot wide open...f/4.5 or lower, depending on the lens you're using.

Watch for shadows! If the model is not used to shooting outdoors, tell her to point her nose toward the sun. If she has trouble looking toward the sun, you can try the ole 1...2....3....open your eyes... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]





If you're shooting at a time when the sun is too bright (high noon) you can have your model stand in some solid shade. You need to stand in the open sunlight and let your lens suck up alot of light. Would be best if the sun was over your shoulder, but, not necessary.



Hope that helps.

Oh, I forgot to mention, you can also shoot the first couple hours of the day too, if you like to get up early [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

This was shot around 6:45 in the morning...I think....

Hi Don,

I think this is the first time I've commented on your work. I have seen your stuff and think you are doing some nice photos. And your wife is very lovely. The thing that struck me first is the look on her face and in her eyes. It seems like the sun was too bright. You could try looking for open shade or try using a diffussion panel or scrim or something to block the harsh light.


Model: Mia, taken in open shade at the entrance to my house.


The sun was behind her on this one and I used a gold reflector to light her on this one.
